I got a call today from someone in our Chabad house. He wanted to know how they could reach Rabbi Hendel, a Shliach in Athens, Greece.
Turns out, El Al Flight LY8 to Tel Aviv flying from JFK had to make an emergency landing somewhere for a medical condition.
They ended up in Athens, Greece, and when he called me they were going to land 20 minutes before Shkiah.
They couldn’t reach Rabbi Hendel and they didn’t know what to do. I made a few calls, I whatsapped, and Rabbi Hendel called me and said El Al called him.
He is in New York, his wife is making arrangements for food to be brought to the lounge in the airport and 25 yidden who are Shomer Shabbos are going to sleep there and eat there in the airport in Athens, thanks to Chabad of Athens.
