A Religious wave in LA

They do enjoy unusual blessings in California. Recently the JC reported on the gay San Francisco shul which had come up with a brachah for "unexpected sex".

Meanwhile, down in LA there is a different preoccupation - the surf. A rabbi was among several religious leaders who turned up to "bless the waves".

Explained Carol Weinfeld of Temple Beth David: "Some people pray in forests and others by a calm cool lake."

Worshippers dressed in flip-flops and wetsuits prayed for tubular waves and a safe return to shore.
On more than one occasion, the Almighty was referred to as "The Big Kahuna".
