Fly El Al — they know what Tefillin is
In one particular subset of American society, people were recently abuzz with the news story about how a plane was diverted from its NYC-Louiville flight plan, on account of a Jewish teenager taking out his tefillin (phylacteries) on the flight and praying.
It probably won't happen again for awhile at this point. But one can never be too sure...
The above picture is of Benedict Spinoza, perhaps the most famous excommunicated Jew in history. Certainly top 5. While in Amsterdam, I decided he needed a hat.
This blog will give me the opportunity to flesh out many of my thoughts. But let's keep this dynamic. Let me hear feedback. Glad that's settled.
