These were 150+ Jews from all walks of life, with varied backgrounds and clothing styles, who were concerned about Shabbos. Everyone coming off the plane was united in one thing: Shabbos is our gift and our inheritance from the Creator and we would uphold it.

Connection: This week's Torah Reading Vayishlach, Ya'akov establishes limits for distance allowed for walking in uninhabited areas on Shabbat (33:18)
