When it comes to finding Kosher travel, the sky’s the limit. As the new signing and subsequent normalization of relations between Israel and UAE there have already been many column inches printed in the media on the prospects for increased tourism and travel between the two nations. Not long after these initial headlines there were more stories and reports coming out on the potential for more Jewish travel to the Gulf state; this has had a huge impact on Kosher travel opportunities and it is only going to increase. In this article we are going to take a look at some of the major ways Kosher travel has seen a huge boost, and in turn the possibility of more Jewish businesses opening up.
While the first part of this article looked at the potential for Kosher travel to the Gulf state, the second part looks at Kosher travel opportunities to the rest of the world. There are several places that Jewish businesses have seen growth, particularly in Africa, where they were once not too popular. These places that were previously off limits to Jewish businesses have now been opened up to Kosher travel.
The biggest boost to Kosher travel came from the opening of the Kosher market in Egypt. Now it is possible to find Kosher food products, kosher hotels and many other Jewish services for sale or to rent in the Sinai Desert. There has been an increase in Kosher travel to this area, as many Jews are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, but there has also been an increase in local food markets catering to Kosher customers.
The opening of the Kosher market in Morocco has also seen an increase in Kosher travel to this country. There is also a strong presence of Kosher restaurants that have sprung up all over the country. Because of its importance to the Muslim world, Morocco has become a haven for those seeking Kosher food, and has been a great choice for those wanting to avoid the crowds in other parts of the country. In addition to this, the Moroccan people speak Arabic, which makes for a great opportunity for Jewish cultural exchange and interaction.
Another place that has seen a tremendous rise in Kosher travel is in Russia. There was a surge in kosher travel to this country when the Knesset was elected, and more Kosher restaurants were opened in many major cities. The new laws made by the Orthodox rabbis are opening up the door to Kosher restaurants all over the world, and this has been the perfect opportunity for Kosher travel to the masses.
There are a few other countries around the world that are seeing an increase in Kosher travel as well. The list is growing with each passing day, with new places opening their doors to Jewish travel.
