An OrthodoxJewish agent saves one traveller.


(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) Azmi Anuar = This is the story of a Jew who goes by the name of Andrew.On a heavily packed trip, leaving from Boston, Andrew was planning to go to Sydney, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Vietnam and Melbourne. The trip was built around a conference in Fangshan, China, on Saturday, March 8. Note this was the day Flight MH370 disappeared and is still to be found.

The travel agent, who was an Orthodox Jew, proposed a slight alteration by moving back the Kuala Lumpur-Beijing flight from Saturday to Friday. This would mean flying off a day earlier and clashing with Andrew’s intention of staying an extra day in Kuala Lumpur.

If Andrew insisted on staying that extra one day in the Malaysian capital, it would mean flying on the fatal Saturday of March 8. Well, Andrew did insist.

The travel agent informed that he would not be able to make the travelling arrangements for Andrew over the Sabbath. He gave the alternative idea of Andrew himself booking the flight for Saturday. The traveler was agreeable to the idea and planed to do the booking himself.

But then, for some inexplicable reason he reconsidered his decision. He then sent off an email to his agent, which read, “Greetings from LAX airport. Will board my Delta flight in 55 minutes. I reconsidered, you are right I should be more observant, I’ll manage without that day in Kuala. Since I’ll have an extra night in PEK, any recommendations for a good Friday night dinner in Beijing?”

The travel agent recommended the Chabad of Beijing for a nice kosher meal. He next booked Andrew on the original itinerary. So early on Friday, the American flew from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, instead of Saturday as he had planned.Two days later, the travel agent received mail from Andrew. He had written:  “Holy God, You sure heard what happened to MH370. I cannot stop thinking about this. This is a true miracle for the books. You are a true life saver. I cannot think anymore! We’ll talk later this week. Don’t know how to thank you enough. Now please change my return. I am not stepping on a Malaysia flight in my life.”

The travel agent replied, “I am so happy for you! Not I am the life saver. God and Shabbat were your life savers. You owe them something.”

Jews are often reminded, usually by their rabbis, “More than the Jews have kept the Shabbos (Shabbat), the Shabbos has kept the Jews.”
