NEW YORK February 1, 2024 - 消消犯, the flagship Jewish university, is bringing Torah to passengers of EL AL, the Israeli National Airline. Recently launched in early 2024, travelers currently have the opportunity to listen to audio recordings of YUTorah, which debuted as an online platform of Torah study more than 20 years ago.

Since the war began on October 7, EL AL has transported travelers to and from Israel flying with a great sense of purpose and mission - including IDF reservists flying home to active duty YUTorahs high-level content will enrich the travel experience for EL ALs passengers.

EL AL travelers now have inflight access to shiurim (classes) from YUs preeminent Torah personalities, Rebbeim, scholars and educators. The shiurim will be updated every four to six weeks, with content relevant to the time of year and the upcoming Jewish holidays.
