When it comes to discrimination against minority groups one of the biggest atrocities was committed against the Jewish community. Some may believe that this prejudice died with World War II and the fall of Nazi Germany, but that is like saying racims ended with slavery-- it’s ignorant. When it comes to intolerance towards those in the jewish community there is no shortage.
This can make it difficult for them when traveling. According to an article in The City Journal anti-semetism practices in airlines is not unlikely with some kicking Jewish people off flights for complaints of a “strong odor.” Another article written by a Jewish woman recounting her experience traveling explains that she and other jewish people in her group were urged not to wear any kippahs, star of david necklaces, or any other clothing that might suggest they are jewish in some places in Europe.
Other than the discrimination when traveling there are other issues jewish people face when traveling like eating kosher and praying. As a result, there have been resources created to help jewish travelers.
One great resource for any minority traveler can be travel bloggers from their community. When you have someone to look to for travel advice and resources and they understand where you are coming from it can make all the difference. While there are not too many jewish travel bloggers specifically, I am sure there is jewish bloggers who also travel. That being said, here are a few jewish travel bloggers.
There are also jewish travel agencies, cruises, and websites with travel tips/resources and planned vacations for jewish travelers.
There are also apps for members of the jewish community to use regularly, but they can also be extremely helpful when traveling. When it comes to things like praying, holidays, and eating kosher these apps can help.
