What a display of Achdus. It’s great to hear news like that. It shows what we can accomplish if we work with each other instead of arguing for noth.

Why is Achdus and VeOhavto Lereacho Kamocho is eaiser in such situations? It’s all the time we should be “KeIsh Echod B’Lev Echod”

Rebbe's advice

This is the very reason why the Rebbe advised that one should not plan their travels for a Friday.
Wise man. We should all listen to his advice and teachings. And maybe we wouldn’t come to sin.Chas V’sholom.

to #5, don’t tell him to lighten up.

Messing with shabbos is no joke, okay, so don’t go telling people who take shabbos seriously to “chil out.” your playing with fire

This is not a one time event, it happens over and over and we never learn. Just look at the accidents on Route 17 in the Catskills in the hours before shabbos. This should be a reminder to plan in advance and not just get in the car and go and rely on miracles. Dont travel on Friday!

this is awesome

I thought that you a report coming out of C.H. would know better than to write about “frum” Jews. The main thing (the only thing, really) is that JEWS were able to observe Shabbos.

Things like that happen, you never know what could happen, Hashem has his ways! so stop with the senseless comments and think about what you write before you write it as the saying goes “Before you say what you think, THINK” so please do and watch what you say it can really hurt people’s feelings!

Be careful and let not be judgmental. So now because they took an airplane on Friday their frumkite is in doubt? The article made it clear that their plane was scheduled for the friday morning. How could they knew in advance that sof kol sof the plane will be delayed till late in the afternoon? Nobody can know for sure. Moreover, it may be that friday was the only day available to have their flight to Eretz Yisroel. So, I second #5: lighten up!! seriously…

Avoid Friday travel if at all possible

I always schedule long distance trips for another weekday, especially if traveling to Israel or Europe. Unforeseen delays can occur especially if traveling by airplane.

The flight from Zurich (which I happan to know they flew from) to El-Al airport is only about 3 1/2 – 4 hours.

it was late already when they left
Guest
it was late already when they left

yes, but the flight left Zurich late. They knew it was tight. The El al flight left on time. I was in it.

Amazing! May Zaka only be used for this!
