Question
Dear Rabbi, Is there a problem with a kohen flying on a plane transporting a dead body? Truth is, passengers usually don’t know the plane has one. The one time I found out was when a plane I was on landed and they announced they were stopping to ceremoniously drop off the body of a soldier killed while on duty. That soldier was not likely Jewish. But all airlines, El Al included, do transport corpses, usually without letting passengers know.

Question
Shalom! I would like to know some halachot about grafting: Is it allowed to graft trees from the same plant species (e.g. two apple trees)? Is it allowed to plant such a tree? Is it allowed to plant a grafted tree which contains two species (e.g. a quince and a pear)? Is it allowed to plant a tree that is in itself a mixture of two species (e.g. a plumcot, which is a hybrid from a plum x apricot)? Thank you!

Question
My question has multiple parts. Is one allowed to set an alarm clock to ring on Shabbos? If the Alarm Clock has a small pod that vibrates, is that allowed? Is the vibrating pod allowed to be under the pillow on Shabbos? If the alarm is set to ring on shabbos, is one allowed to turn the volume down before it starts ringing? If the vibrating pod is set to go off, is one allowed to disconnect it from the alarm before it starts vibrating (there is no electricity going to the pod when it's not vibrating)?

Question
Dear Rabbi, I came across an article that stated that a Jewish person may not be buried in consecrated grounds if he or she has a decorative tattoo. Is this true?
