Another Torah True Innovation

The Rabbinical Council for Public Transportation is working hard to keep Jews safe on land, sea and in the air:

"The new mehitzas, made of white nylon, stick onto the fabric of the airplane chair using Velcro and can be arranged to make a protective “shield.” The mehitza goes around the head and is mostly in front of the passenger’s face, protruding only a little to the sides. Its designer, who asked that his name not be published, declined to share pictures and his design details, but said the mehitzas were “airy” and did not bother anybody."


Doubt this is Torah True, and based on authentic practice? Don't be so sure! Moshe wore a veil, didn't he? Didn't he? I rest my case.
