Tractate Ohaloth

by @azigra

This picture was posted on twitter by someone who goes by the handle @bprebbetzin. It is of a man sitting on a flight, perhaps upon takeoff, completely encased in a clear garbage bag (find them here on Amazon). It seems this man is of priestly descent (a Kohen) and fears the contamination that comes with flying over the many cemeteries that sprinkle Israel between Ben Gurion Airport and the Mediterranean Sea.

I've heard of this before, a "prominent" Israeli Mir Rosh Yeshiva (initialed NK) does this as well when he leaves israel on his many fund raising adventures to the US, however, he doesn't use a plastic bag but rather a lead bag. The man in the picture is an Am Ha'aretz, plastic doesn't keep out the defilement of the dead, only sitting on a plane encased in lead can protect you from that.
