Photo of the Day – Man Covers Himself In Plastic Bag During Flight

Jewish man covered in a plastic bag on a flight

This Jewish was photographed covering himself with a plastic bag because his religion does not permit him to fly over cemeteries.

The man covers himself in plastic bag during the whole flight and is believed to be a Kohein, a religious descendant of the priests of ancient Israel, who are forbidden from flying over cemeteries.

The unusual photograph, went immediately after it was posted on Reddit. It showed other passengers stretching their neck to have a glimpse of what was going on.

“In orthodox and Conservative communities, Kohanim are expected to abstain from coming in contact with the dead, which includes a prohibition on visiting cemeteries except for the funerals of close relatives,” Rabbi Jeffrey W. Goldwasser, of  Temple Beit HaYam in Israel, explained.
