    Jews have been travelling to Dubai for quite a while without any problems. As you probably know, there is a shul in Dubai that holds Shabbos services but keeps a very low profile You won’t see a website or a sign outside. There are a number of American, Canadian, UK and South African banks and law firms and some energy firms that have Jewish staff resident in Dubai with no problems. They also have occasional visits from European jewelry and diamond dealers who are dressed in Yeshivish lvush. Yes, you are still likely to get some stares, but more out of curiosity rather than any overt anti-Semitism.

    Is it any different than going to Muslim Turkey?

    Reb Yosef is correct except I believe that Dubai is much safer for yidden. I am unaware of any overtly anti-semitic attacks in recent years on the small Jewish populations (mainly ex-pats and professionals working for Wextern companies) who are resident or visiting either Dubai or Kuwait. There was one incident several years ago in Quatar but I don’t think there was any repetition and that incident involved a Jew but not easily identifiable as such.

    Dubai doesn’t care what your religion, or ethnicity or, country of origin is as long as you bring money.

    Is Dubai safer than Williamsburg? And if so, why?

    Huju: The murder rate in Dubai is 0.3 in 2017 for every 100,000 population, while violent and aggressive crime rate is 1.2/100,000 population.
    The murder rate in Brooklyn (not specific to Willy) is 12x higher than Dubai
    The violent crime rate (however defined) appears to be at least 50x higher (but may not be apples to apples caparison depending on what crimes are included)

    While surprisingly tolerant of other religions, in Dubai, a Westerner is putting yourself at risk by engaging in public displays of affection, consuming alcohol in public or wearing truly “untziniusdik” clothing. Wearing yeshivish lvush is NOT going to be a problem
