Southern Hospitality

I believe Savannah Georgia is the queen of southern hospitality. When visitors call me to see if they can eat in the Glatt kosher retirement community next to the shul, I tell them not to bother. They'll receive numeous invitations in shul & someone will take them home for Shabbos!

Jews in the South

People are always so suprised to find Jews in the South. My mother's maternal great grandfather and her paternal grandfather were among the founders in 1855 of the shul which hosted Lori. The shul has the second longest continuous minyan in the US. Check out Charleston: you'll be pleasantly surprised.

opening your home to strangers

If you want to offer your home as a haven to other Jewish travelers, there is a site called, on which you can offer up your home to travelers, find homes offered to travelers, etc. They offer an area to write referrals, so that you can get an idea of what kind of people they are, you can see photos, and you can join networks that fit your interests and religious beliefs. I use it whenever I travel and have met some really incredible people and have had really wonderful experiences.

Kosher B&B, among anything involved with customer service and home hospitality should always be warm and welcoming. If only those in customer service had a much better attitude and acted more professional either meeting or exceeding the customer's expectations such as in convenience stores and insurance companies. B&B's are certainly a great place for some home hospitalities, and it all starts with attitude as a small thing that makes a HUGE difference.

Many of us accept the mitzvah of Hachanassat Orchim, but never really look at it from this perspective. For the people who don't really do mitzvot, this is an interesting view to prompt them to do them. Excellent idea.

Interesting concept

Beautiful idea to run all of your life as if it were a business. Imagine taking the perspective of the customer (ie. whoever is in front of you, on the phone, on the other end of an email) is always right. Thanks so much, Lori, for the good idea.
