וְרָאוּ כָּל עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ כִּי שֵׁם יְיָ נִקְרָא עָלֶיךָ וְיָרְאוּ מִמֶּךָּ - אלו תפילין שבראש

וְרָאוּ כָּל עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ כִּי שֵׁם יְיָ נִקְרָא עָלֶיךָ, וְיָרְאוּ מִמֶּךָּ
ותניא: 'רבי אליעזר הגדול אומר: אלו תפילין שבראש

I guess it really works!

On a serious note, I don't think anyone understood the Posuk to mean a story like this.

I mean you would think that in this day and age they would know what Tefilin is. Not to mention a flight out of New York City!

Interesting to note that this happened in the Parsha that speaks about Teffilin!

its a mitzvah to daven in public
goyim seeing yidden with tefillin makes them aware of who is the Boss
and makes them realize we r for real
