TSA to Permit Lulavim and Esrogim During Airplane Travel


lulav-esrogIn advance of Sukkos, the Transportation and Security Administration reminded its airport screeners and the travelling public that Jewish travelers may carry the Arbah Minim through security checkpoints and onboard planes.The announcement appears to forestall incidents that tend to happen each year, especially at international gateways.

“TSA’s screening procedures do not prohibit the carrying of such agricultural items through the airport or security checkpoints, or on airplanes,” the federal agency announced Sept. 13. “These plants are not on TSA’s Prohibited Items List. And, as always, TSA is committed to treating all passengers, including passengers who may be observing Sukkot, with respect and dignity during the screening process.”
