WSJ: We Don't Know Why 50 Rabbis Flew to Stop the Flu

No, we cannot explain why rabbis had to go up in a plane to pray to stop the flu.

If you do believe that you can pray to God to stop a particular epidemic, then you also believe that you can pray anywhere, although a synagogue would be the expected venue of choice, or an earthly location in the center of a town or a region.

Accordingly, don't ask us to explain the aviating actions of these meshuggenahs, as mentioned in the WSJ...
In Israel, about 50 rabbis prayed on an airplane that circled the country earlier this week in an effort to fight the flu, the BBC reports. The aim was “to stop the pandemic so people will not keep dying from it,” one rabbi told a local newspaper, according to the Associated Press.
