Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Passover Mishap #lithuania
Kapochunas, Andrew <KapochunasA@...>
from one of my friends:"The Jewish community in Madrid needed horseradish for making chrain
(horseradish for Pesach), but all the European Union countries gave them the same reply, "Sorry, we have none to spare." In desperation, the Rabbi phoned one of his Yeshiva friends in Tel Aviv and begged him to send a crate of horseradish by air freight to Madrid. Two days before Pesach, a crate of grade Aleph tear-jerking, sinus-clearing Israeli horseradish was loaded at Ben Gurion Airport onto the El Al 789 flight to Madrid, and all seemed to be well. Unfortunately, when the Rabbi went to the Madrid Airport to claim the horseradish he was informed that a wildcat strike had just broken out and no shipments would be unloaded for at least four days. As a result: The chrain in Spain stayed mainly on the plane."
