El Al takes Torah higher


El Al may offer recorded Torah lectures for passengers on its flights.


Though Israel’s premeir international airline long has had an audio channel with music by religious Jewish artists, fervently Orthodox clients are demanding more educational content, Israel’s daily Ma’ariv reported Monday.


“The company is certainly thinking of operating a special channel for the ultra-Orthodox sector on the VOD services on our planes. It is expected that establishment of the channel will take a few months,” the newspaper quoted El Al as saying in a statement.


The new channel, if instituted, likely would include the worldwide Daf Yomi lesson, which covers a folio of the Talmud each day.
