A noteworthy prayer



While in Jerusalem earlier this month. Congressman Charlie Crist , D- St. Petersburg, posted this photo on Twitter, showing him placing this note in the Western Wall, praying to keep “storms and other difficulties” away from Florida. In 2007, he began the yearly tradition while visiting the holy site as Florida’s governor. Since then, with the exception of 2016, he has had a similar note delivered to the Wall each year prior to hurricane season. During that time, 2016 was the only year that a hurricane made landfall in the state. Crist will speak about the trip, which was hosted by an AIPAC affiliate, at a program at Congregation Beth Shalom in Clearwater. For more information, see Page 6.
