Is it safe? We have a few methods for dealing with security issues:
Double checking: Member's profiles will be approved by the site operators to be sure that the profile is sensible.
Reviews system: Each member has a review area. Here you can read comments from previous Jewgether expriences about your host/guest.
Tips: There are several ways you can enhance the security of your Jewgethering. For example, you can scan and email each other's passports, or talk over the phone before Jewgethering to get to know each other, etc.
Who are the people behind the project? We are a group of three young Israeli students from the Technion – Israel's Institute of Technology. We started as part of the StandWithUs Fellowship, which aims to train the future leaders of Israel.
Nowadays we are working as a single group with our donors: The Jewish Agency for Israel, StandWithUs Inc., The World Zionist Organization and many more.
The search engine is meant to help you find a place to stay and therefore you don't see yourself when you logged in with your account. Have no worries, you are listed!
Other Jewgether users see you on the results.
What about Privacy?
Your profile is visible only to Jewgether.org members. Search engines do find Jewgether.org pages, but only approved and logged in Jewgether users can actually see the results (all others are directed to the registration page).
Is it free? Absolutely! Jewgether.org services are totally free! You are not supposed to pay to any host. However, you can show your appreciation by a small and a symbolic present or by writing a thank-you letter.
Can you give me an example for a use of the site? You can use Jewgether.org in many ways:
If you are traveling abroad and want to be hosted, you can find a host through the website.
If you are alone in a foreign country on Shabbat or during a holiday, you can find someone to spend it through the website.
If you want to open your own house and host Jewish people from around the world you can do so through Jewgether.org.
If you live in a city with a small Jewish community and want to find other Jews in your area that you don't know, Jewgether can help you with that.
