I bought a plane ticket to fly around the world. The ticket is good for one year. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. My concern is how I will find the Jewish community in each place, especially for Shabbat and holidays. Any ideas?

The Aish Rabbi Replies

Welcoming guests, especially fellow Jews trying to observe Shabbat, is a tremendous mitzvah. Both the guest and the host benefit. Recently, friends of mine took a trip to Anchorage, Alaska and were pleasantly surprised to find people there only too happy to welcome him and his family.

In the USA, www.shabbat.com helps connect guests and hosts using pictures, profiles, maps and locations from around the world.

For a complete listing of synagogues and Shabbat hospitality around the world, there is an excellent book called "The Jewish Travelers' Resource Guide" compiled by Jeff Seidel's Jewish Student Information Center. See it online at www.makshivim.org
