A Kosher Spaceship

Partaking in Jewish tradition is prominent in the world around us.  Weekly family Friday night gatherings, Israel trips, putting up a mezuza on one’s office door and so forth are all evident. 

One working man is taking this to the next level, literally – outer space.

Gregory Chamitoff, Jewish American and member of NASA’s Discovery crew, embarks on a six-month research mission on the international space station in May.  Accompanying him on his shuttle will be not one, but two mezuzot, to decorate his bunk area, making this a kosher space shuttle.

We wish Chamitoff and his crew nissiah tova (safe travels).
