    This story doesn’t look authentic. No names or proof that this story actually happened. Some bored soul decided to make up a story and now its gone viral. To all my facebook friends, stop sharing this story that did not happen!

    I personally verified this story and saw the emails with their gmail time stamps. Also I know the travel agent. I was the first to share this on FaceBook.

    Of course you can believe what you’d like but it’s 100% true and I hope it helps bring many yidden to observe shabbos more!

    and unfortunately one negative comment (#6) brought forth more negative comments.. Let’s revel in this miracle and allow it to shine upon all our souls so that we can each have a part and thus be induced to increase in acts of kindness and goodness.

    Nice story, but...

    …I find it hard to believe a travel agent would discuss religion with a client, and even refuse to book him the flight he asked for. Very unprofessional.

    I won’t believe the story without further evidence, perhaps an explanation about how the agent knew the guy was Jewish to begin with, and the nature of their relationship such that the agen would be so unprofessional so as to refuse him service.

    Why be a non believer? I happen to personally know the travel agent, my husband knows him, and heard the story first hand. It may surprise you to know that in order to protect a persons privacy, a company should never release their name! The traveler does not (yet?) know that his story has even made waves, let alone news waves. And if the travel agent released his name/company and other customers of his stumbled upon this story, even without a real name they could well be unimpressed and feel somewhat violated in terms of professionalism/confidentiality. They are dealing with… Read more »

    for some pious people, religion does come before money, it’s not unprofessional, it’s called pious,

    who is the travel agent?

    first of all travel agents are not an automated system like AA that you call once and all you know that the person who serviced your call her name is michelle. a travel agent is more like a personal travel secretary who most of the time know their clients.
    secondly, regarding unprofessionalism, the travel agent had his own standards of how he does business. just like jews in generl would, hopefully, deny an offer for a job to be done on shabbos….

    If you were in the business you may understand. It’s a much friendlier relationship between provider and receiver in these services, speaking firsthand. And yes, it’s very common I know several agents who do same for returning clients. If they already have a continuing relationship, and Jewishness inevitably comes up at some point between all the conversations – sometimes including personal tidbits of information, from either side – you’d know it’s very normal. Another note, while once booking a ticket for a customer which he needed to include a stopover in Bali, I had to ask (his last name was… Read more »

    Baruch HaShem for saving a yid and Shabbos so.publicly, the week going into Purim when the entire Jewish nation and Shabbos, our day of rest and spirituality, was saved by our return to Yiddishkite. I say our return to yiddishkite because Esther led us in a fast. May we remember the fast of Esther this Thursday and once again fast and remember all the yids who are not keeping Shabbos and pray for them and us to return for our own sake and the sake of the entire world. Messhiach now! Chi (life) ….

    I feel, nothing but my feeling, that this story is about Yehuda Silverstein, who is extremely humble, pious and professional travel agent. Even email style is very similar to his. Kol aKavod to the agent!

    To the commentors, the disappearance is a great tragedy to many people. The author is just pointing out though one incident that happened that amazingly saved someone’s life.
    We don’t know why things happen the way they do. Hopefully, the victims are in paradise. We can feel for the victims while also acknowledging how someone survived. He is Not saying anything bad about the victims on the Malaysian plane, just pointing out how choosing a different date saved someone.

    my comment was for anyone out there who might take the the story the wrong way.

    Please, Yiden take this as as a wake up call. He didn’t just chose a different date. He chose to observe the Shabbos.

    Miracles happen every day, every moment. Have we already forgotten the miracles around 911 and those who couldn’t get to work that day for whatever reason? We just have to open our eyes and ears. Oh, and to #13, I think it should read “don’t mess with Hashem” but your meaning is correct. Lovely story.
