Looking for a quick and easy way to find Jewish things to see, do and enjoy, then Aish.com's Jewish travel guides provide a great resource.
Currently it's guides cover a selection of US states as well as Toronto in Canada. On offer is useful information on Boston, Cleveland, Denver Los Angles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, St Louis and Washington DC.
From places to stay, where to eat kosher, go to shul (Aish being an orthodox organisation leaves out anything that is not-orthodox), history of the areas and what other Jewish things can be checked out.
The guides provide just enough of an introduction without getting into great detail by providing a useful taster to what each state has to offer.
The guides are very useful for anyone who has limited time to spend as they certainly will get you a flavour of what to really do.
A place such as New York is vast when it comes to Jewish things and the guide gets to the basics, it offers the essential museums, places to eat and of course shuls to go to.
Where it lacks is in embracing other sections of the Jewish community. There may be a wonderful reform shul to visit which has historical importance, but Aish does not include it.
Despite its orthodox bias, it still serves a useful purpose and provided it is kept up to date should be a good starting point for anyone interested in visiting the places it covers.
