Plane Minyans

I've been saying for years - much before 9/11 - that it's a big problem to organize minyans on planes. It's an inconvenience for all the other passengers, especially those who don't understand halakha. Then, after 9/11, it looks like a bunch of religious crazies, wearing black leather straps and shaking back and forth, are congregating to follow their Ancient God's will. I'd be scared, were I not frum.

So I'm glad to see that other rabbis came on my bandwagon, even if it's a decade late: Manchester Rabbi Says Don't pray in a minyan on a plane. (Jewish Chronicle).
