For years I've been typing that I went to a secret synagogue in the UAE. Well here is proof that it exists.

This is very interesting, Pruzhany. I remember your posts talking about this.

We’re you a part of this decision? How do you feel about it?

No. I would've left it as it was when we paid off others to look the other way (and protected us at the same time). I consider Dubai a safe city, but there are still crazies everywhere. So now that it's in the open, extensive security will now be required which will now actually cost us more.

Sounds terrifying to me. Very interesting though, thanks for posting.

This terrifies me, and I'm not even Jewish.

Dubai = the country that detained a British woman for drinking one glass of wine on an incoming flight.

I mean, we just witnessed a terror attack in Pittsburgh, even though the U.S. is overall the safest country in the world for Jewish people. They're gonna trust in safety in Dubai? Really?

But I do wish the Dubai synagogue the best of luck.

Dubai is modern and very Westernized
