Written under: Human Interest, Travel
This morning on a US Airways flight, a Jewish passenger was the victim of mistaken identity. He was thought to be a terrorist because of his phylacteries whose picture is shown below.
Another passenger who doesn’t know what phylacteries tefillin are saw the religious item being strapped onto the body of the Jewish passenger and caused a bomb scare in the plane.
This caused the plane to be diverted to Philadelphia. The plane was headed to Louisville after taking off from New York’s La Guardia.
For those who don’t know the meaning or what a phylacteries tefillin are, it is something used in a Jewish Morning Prayer.
