Hot Salt Beef: The NEW Community/Dating Site for the Jewish LGBT Community!

HotSaltBeef, an exclusive and completely inclusive social networking site for Jewish LGBT (JLGBT) people, was launched on Sunday 6th April 2014.



After noticing a gap in the market for a networking site that integrates the social, cultural and community aspects of Jewish life specifically aimed at JLGBT people, Founder Allan Davis took a leap of faith and created HotSaltBeef — a social networking platform for JLGBT people where they can celebrate the things that connect them at their core, build a local and global online community, make business connections and perhaps even find love.

Hot Salt Beef is woven into the fabric of being Jewish. Who doesn’t like a Hot Salt Beef Sandwich? It’s something every Jewish person instantly associates with — it brings back memories of comfort, familiarity, belonging… and well, food.

Food forms a big part of Jewish culture. All the major Jewish festival revolve around the family sitting together for a big meal… It’s what brings us together.

And therein lays the philosophy behind HotSaltBeef: Family, safety, connection, community, conversation, comfort, love and belonging.

Being an exclusive social networking site for JLGBT people may seem like a shortcoming at first, but the truth is there are certain things that are so uniquely Jewish that we need a space where we can connect and converse comfortably without having to provide a ‘backstory’… We sometimes want to 'kibbitz' (gossip) in a chat room and 'kvetch' (complain) about the rising house prices, without feeling the need to explain what we are actually doing.

Apart from that, because of our displacement throughout history, Jewish people have an almost genetic urge to build communities and find a ‘place called home’.

HotSaltBeef has the potential to provide that sense of togetherness and 'home-coming' online… And that’s why HotSaltBeef is ‘keeping kosher’.

Instead of having a single focus — being a dating site only — HotSaltBeef is more like the bakery in a Jewish neighborhood… a place where you get your bagels, perhaps bump into your lawyer or doctor and if you like, flirt with the 'Shaineh maidel' (beautiful young lady) behind the counter. The dating element is still there but the focus is much more on community building — it is not about ‘sex’ or about posting photos of your tuchas (or any other revealing bits) for the world to see.

‘HotSaltBeef and Mustard’ is the newsletter and blog section, bringing news and views from around the world. The aim is to involve members from across the globe to contribute with their reviews, travel tips, fresh and relevant news events and historical insights to strengthen the fabric of our online community.

In terms of future developments, HotSaltBeef will soon include a Business Directory for members to promote their own business or to recommend a business that may interest the community, and also host a classifieds section to sell anything from rare Barbara Streisand CDs to advertising holidays.

While the site is still in its teething-phase, membership is limited to ‘invitation only’ and the first 500 members who sign up will receive a FREE membership.

Allan Davis, the Founder and creator of HotSaltBeef has been an out and proud Jewish gay man for over 30 years. His Gay and Jewish bits come in equal parts. Born in London in the 1960’s Allan had a very Jewish upbringing and education. He ‘came out’ in 1983, when the world was a very different place for LGBT people: being Out & Proud still raised eyebrows and marriage and having children wasn’t even an option. Thirty years later and the world is… well, almost as good as a Hot Salt Beef Sandwich. Allan’s only worry now is to convince his father to pay for a big wedding!

THE ELLA INTERNATIONAL LESBIAN FESTIVAL, MALLORCA


The ELLA International Lesbian Festival in Mallorca, 4-8th Sept. 2014, is a revolutionary and new concept for women-only vacation fun: a complete mix of DJ and live music, culture, dance and acrobatic shows, arts and sports on a four day exciting and easily customizable program!

Choose the kind of vacation you wish to spend in function of your interests and of the kind of women you want to meet. Customize, book, and live the experience of a lifetime!

And all this on the beautiful island of Mallorca, one of the great natural destinations of the World.

One cannot imagine how amazing the island is. Breathtaking limestone cliffs plunge into translucent turquoise waters, and vast plains filled with almonds, carobs, olives and vineyards stretch generously across the interior. Beautiful and discreet coves serve as reminders of why the world long ago fell in love with this beautiful Island.

But the Mallorcan summer is about so much more than beaches: Mallorca offers a wide variety of culinary delights, wonderful wines, welcoming locals and last but not least natural attractions, at the centre of the whole experience.

Kristin Hansen, managing director of Hansen&Partner and of the ELLA Festival, realized that Mallorca was the ideal place to create a Lesbian Festival where thousands of women from all over the world could meet and share together their interests for music, art, culture, sports, nature and party, and could not understand the lack of quality leisure offer in the Lesbian world.

Many years of LGBT-related events, experiences and international contacts fostered what was to become ELLA International Lesbian Festival.

After a successful 2013 edition, ELLA Festival 2014 proposes from the 4-8th of September 2014 not only amazing musicians, artists and performers during night events, but also a whole day program and activities to satisfy body and soul in a friendly, entertaining, cultural, artistic and women-oriented atmosphere.

The three ELLA recommended Hotels are located in front of the sea in the heart of Palma's harbour, and just a few hundred meters from most venues which are, if not the nicest, simply amazing.

Whatever it is you are looking for on your holiday you will find in the program of ELLA Festival 2014. Our simple web-system allows you to customize comfortably and easily your vacation, always controlling your spending and choosing exactly the activities you wish to attend...individually or on packs... NO to paying for things that do not fulfil you, and YES to meeting women who share your same interests.

You can find all the information and book on our web www.ellafestival.com and on facebook.com/ellafestivalmallorca!!

Let your sensations drive you to Mallorca, experience new emotions, and meet just your kind of women!


Hasta Luego!
