Jewish immigrants see Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s capital, as havens from anti-Semitism, which also benefit from low taxes and relaxed Covid rules. The country’s strict laws against hate speech against any religion — not just Islam — make some Jews feel safer wearing a kippah in Dubai than in some western cities.
