Flying rabbis fight swine flu
28-Nov-2009 (4 comments)

A group of rabbis and Jewish mystics has taken to the skies over Israel, praying and blowing ceremonial horns in a plane to ward off swine flu.

About 50 religious leaders circled over the country on Monday, chanting prayers and blowing horns, called shofars.

The flight's aim was "to stop the pandemic so people will stop dying from it", Rabbi Yitzhak Batzri was quoted as saying in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

The flu is often called simply "H1N1" in Israel, as pigs are seen as unclean.


They seek help from super natural powers too

If you thought we were the only people who seek help from super natural powers then watch this hilarious video. Flying Rabbis are circling the Israel's sky and reciting the holly verses to protect the country from the Swine Flu. It's a good laugh.

They better pay a visit to Chaahe Jamkaran. They might get more help in keeping the SWINE Flu away from the Holy Land. While there they can meet with their like minded brothers in Qom. It is like killing 2 birds with one stone.
