Jewish population on DDF
« on: September 29, 2021, 10:08:37 PM »
Allow me to start of by saying Iím ignorant on this topic, so please forgive me if I come off as disrespectful (unknowingly).

I joined DDF barely a month ago, primarily for trading some Amex Offers and free night certificates. Of all the people I interacted with on DDF, a good number of them are Jewish or follow Jewish holidays (like weíre in one right now?)

Iím wondering if itís just a coincidence that the majority people I interacted with are Jewish, or is there certain connection to Jewish culture to this forum?

P.S. Iím American, non-religious and donít have any particular cultural background.

Thanks guys.

The site is owned by a Jewish religious [awesome] guy. So it's very appealing and customized to Jewish needs. So it basically developed into a Jewish community. However there are plenty of non Jewish readers that benefit from the site just like the Jewish readers. And you are welcome to enjoy it as much as we do.

DansDeals is a deals and travel blog. Traveling as an Orthodox Jew has a unique set of challenges which can be addressed in unique ways. Kosher, Shabbat, Minyan and other issues which are unique to observant Jews.
In addition to everything else travel and deal related, Orthodox Jews appreciate interacting with like minded travelers to get and give travel tips relevant to them as well as interacting with all people about all things related to travel and deals .
