It’s been pretty surreal. Many in Chabad think that I’m a hero because tefillin became one of the top searches on Google. Some people think I showed poor judgment, that I expected [the flight attendant] to be familiar with the ritual of tefillin, which is not true. I expected her not to think that anything that was not familiar to her was a bomb.

- Caleb Liebowitz, otherwise known as the guy wearing tefillin whom a flight attendant mistook for a guy wrapping an explosive device around himself on a flight.
