The 2018 hurricane season is well underway. The most recent storm, Hurricane Michael, left parts of the Florida Panhandle in ruins, with at least five people dead and 1.1 million without power.

Protestant and Jewish congregations around the world are reading about eagles this weekend and some Philadelphia faithful don’t think it’s a coincidence.

In both religions, scriptural verses assigned for reading on the first weekend in February of 2018 mention eagles – flying, soaring, victorious. Rabbi Eric Yanoff delivered a sermon on that excerpt Saturday at Adath Israel congregation in Merion Station. He talked about destiny and the future. Then, the congregation sang “Fly, Eagles Fly” – in Hebrew.
