Israel - Gedolim to visit America

It has widley been reported that the Gerrer Rebbe & Reb Aryeh Leib Shteinman Shlita will be making a trip to visit the USA and other places. Reb Shteinman Shlita will also be attending the Torah Umisorah Dinner........ Well the Israeli Media has picked up on the story! Here ya go! Ynet: Two leading rabbis set to fly to the United States concluded an agreement with El Al that would see them enjoy a woman-free and movie-free flight. The Gerrer Rebbe, a Hassidic leader who will fly abroad on Sunday, asked El Al that no air stewardesses be aboard the flight. El Al complied with the rabbi's request and on Sunday's flight to the United States only males will look after passengers. The Gerrer Rebbe and Rabbi Aharon Leib Steinman, 93, another leading rabbi, will fly in a historic journey to visit American Jewish communities....The rabbis will land in Los Angles where the Jewish community is eagerly awaiting their arrival. A private jet will fly the rabbis to Montreal and Toronto.Their aides agreed with El Al officials that they will not have to see women during flight.The rabbis bought all first class tickets on the flight to make sure no businesswomen are on board. It was also decided that no films will be screened during the flight. Moreover, the backs of first class seats will be covered with plastic so that the rabbis won't even have to see the television screens.
