Skip to comments.Jewish prayer shawl finds new home at Baptist church

The prayer shawl that Myron Slobin received when he was bar mitzvahed in 1955 will have a new home Sept. 8 when Slobin, spiritual leader of the Siouxland International Messianic Fellowship, presents it for dedication to the Rev. Jim Wilson, pastor of the Glendale Baptist Church.
The shawl, or tzitzit will replace the runner on the churchs communion table which was accidentally damaged by the Messianic Fellowship which has been meeting on Fridays at the church for about 3 years.
Its very significant to the Old Testament ties and to the Bible, Wilson said of the tallit. Its something thats very near and dear to the Jewish faith as well as to the Christian faith because its our roots. Its going to be very significant to our ties, what the communion table stands for, between the Passover and the Lords Supper. My eyes have been opened to the working together of these two fellowships, and this is going to draw us even closer together.
An errant candle used by fellowship members burned a hole in the old runner, said Slobin, whose immediate reaction was that the fellowship, as guests, should at least replace the runner, which both the church and fellowship use.

The church minutes declared that he was cast out and "was henceforth to be held as a heathen and a publican."
My dad said, "At least they didn't hold him as a REpublican . . . "
ha! Thats funny.
Their foot shall slide in due time. (Deut 32:35) The horror.
Sinners in the hands of an angry god.
