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.
