1. Yeah right
US   (02.04.11)
I tried this website for my last past trips to D.C and Boston and NO ONE helped me! I ended up staying in a hotel eating sandwiches for shabbat.

ali babashvilii ,   london   (02.04.11)

Find kosher food in Bilbao!!!! Ja, Ja- where they eat snails and other "wilde chayes" for fun. Poor snails.

FOR THE SON OF MAN IS LORD OF THE SABBATH,he went to nazareth where he had been brought up and on the sabbath day he went into the synagogue as was his custom and he stood up to read,the scroll of the prophet isaiah was handed to him,unrolling it he found the place where it is written the spirit of the Lord is on me because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor,he has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind to release the oppressed,to proclaim the year of the Lord´s favor,today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing
5. For the naysayers...

This is great. It is one of the outstanding things about being Jewish. You can always find a place to go on Shabbos. Always. If this site doesn't have a home in a particular locale, you can always call Chabad. There are few places on earth without a local Chabad House, and they welcome all Jews with open arms, a smile and welcoming Yiddishkeit.
6. There r so few religious left, they r desperate for company.

7. Some hints to using the site...
Moshe ,   Passaic, NJ   (02.06.11)
For your location, put the location you're looking for a place for Shabbos, not where you live (unless they're the same thing). Then, mark yourself as "actively looking". Make sure to also have a picture and bio info filled out. You're much more likely to get an invite this way... and if you don't, feel free to request an invite! I've hosted lots of guests via one or the other method through the website.
8. use of Word DIASPORA
Kaufmann ,   zurich, switzerland   (02.06.11)
Dear Sir, please don't use the word DIASPORA to mean chuz lo'orez. We are all in Galuth, even living in erez Jissroel. May Moschiach come soon .
9. Diaspora
micha ,   Passaic, NJ, chu"l   (02.10.11)
Kuafmann: "Diaspora" means "chutz la'aretz". It doesn't mean the same thing as "galut". Your point is correct -- during the entire Galut Yavan the center of Jewish life was in Israel, it was during the 2nd Temple period. And ended with the Hasmoneans making a treaty with Rome -- thus beginning this galut even before we were expelled. But you are mistaken about the English. "Diaspora" is a geographic term, not a spiritual one.
10. Also available in Israel
Jonathan ,   Jerusaelm, Israel   (02.10.11)
The site works for Israel as well. We have hosted dozens in Jerusalem via this site. In fact, this Shabbat we're having 4 guests via the site as well.
