Does this destination require quarantine afterwards


Mileage run?


Aren’t most destinations these days that cheap due to Covid? How much is this flight usually


Is this a great vacation spot for couple?
Any kosher food?


The grocery stores carry American mainland food, so it’s easy to get things like basic groceries and milk if you’re not chalav israel. They actually have a tiny kosher section, and at least when i was there years ago they had 1 or 2 frozen MealMart stuff.

Pre-covid there was a chabad with occasional minyans.

Great vacation spot before covid, especially because no passport needed.


There’s still chabad there

Flights are cheap but accommodation can be expensive…


So instead of flights and accommodation being expensive for these destinations, only the accommodations are 🙂

Any flights from Boston?


What dates?

beit shemesh

do you mind telling us if you were in the virgin islands ever or heard of people that were? is it beautiful the way you talk about palau and oahau?

Avi Katz

I have been to Oahu and to the US Virgin Islands (St Thomas). I would say that Oahu, the island itself is nicer while the beaches (swimming, snorkeling) in St Thomas was much better.

Joseph Ludmir

Let’s get a group together so we can have minyanim and pool together for kosher food


What dates did you book?

Joseph Ludmir

january 24 to jan 28


Any nice resorts there?


Previously when booking through a third party the airline directly did not allow me to change my tickets although there technically is the waived change fee.
Is there a way to go about this?


just book directly through same pricing

Kobe Bryant

Doubt it’s a glitch. DL has Nonstop for 164$

The flights are cheap, but the exuberant cost of the hotels over there will catch up with you. I’m not saying that Miami Beach is all that exotic, but you can fly there for cheap, grab some affordable hotel rates (especially Christmas week), and have plenty of food/minyan options.


But you can’t compare the weather!


Amazing how people are willing to risk your life over this. Lol


Why? What’s the risk? Or you mean those without antibodies?


Pretty tough to risk your life with something that has a 99% survival rate. It’s more dangerous to drive to the airport.


275k deaths from 14M confirmed cases in the US is a 2% fatality rate, double what you suggest. Moreover, a study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation indicates Covid deaths appear to be undercounted by 36%, thus bringing the actual fatality rate closer to 3%. And of those who survive, Mayo Clinic states, “COVID-19 symptoms can sometimes persist for months. The virus can damage the lungs, heart and brain, which increases the risk of long-term health problems.” Likewise, per the NIH, in one large study, “Although most [survivors] had mild symptoms of the disease, nearly 20 percent were critically ill with lung injury that made breathing difficult. Among the critically ill, many experienced cardiomyopathy and catastrophic arrythmias.”

I have been to some rough airports around the world but don’t recall any for which 1 out of every 33 people headed there ended up dead and a significant portion of those who arrived ended up with permanent cardiac, pulmonary, and/or neurological damage. If that’s your airport, you might want to consider moving.


In addition to what Dan said, don’t gloss over your own words: “14M confirmed cases”. No one knows the exact number of actual cases, but everyone knows it is exponentially more than only the cases that were confirmed. This brings down the mortality rate even lower than we already know it is.


Booked for Jan 17
Thank you again and again Dan!!
What is a good place to stay ?
