You gotta love this image which landed on my desk this morning, both because of how funny it is and how telling:
While it’s true that no one will get thrown off an El Al Israel Airlines flight because someone thinks their tefillin is bomb, those who wear tefillin often gather for davening (prayer) in the aisles of the plane, annoying other passengers and complicating the flight attendants’ work. That’s family — everything is known and we all take advantage of that fact!
By the way, the Hebrew in the ad translates to “where you are most at home”. So, as much as El Al and the staff may hate the annoying prayer habits of some of their passengers, they also see it as a commercial advantage. Like I said, you gotta love it.
