Haredi guy floating in the men only beach of the Dead Sea.

This so reminded me of the story of the man who can’t fall asleep because he can’t decide if he should sleep with his beard above or below the blanket. The answer here is clear: beard above the water.

The Dead Sea seawater has an exceptionally high density, which makes swimming there more floating than swimming.

When I was in the second grade my legs were covered in a strange kind of eczema that didn’t itch so much but was pretty unsightly. Then the family took a trip to the Dead Sea and my condition was cured for good.

    For my Bar Mitzvah present from my parents, we went to Israel from the US in the summer of 1960. For as long as I could remember, the back of my right hand was covered in warts, as well as some on the back of my left hand. After swimming in the Dead Sea the warts completely disappeared and never returned.
