from The Miami Herald:
When news broke that there had been a deadly shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Aiport hours before the Jewish Sabbath Friday, Rabbi Schneur Kaplan rushed to the airport with an offer for those who observe: a place to pray and a place to stay.
“Shabbos is coming but thank God we are safe,” he said in a Facebook Live post from Terminal 1. “We have put out a post if anyone is stranded in the airport and needs a place for Shabbos we are going to meet at the baggage claim in Terminal 1 as soon as they allow us to move around. Right now they are not letting us move anywhere.”
His plan: to make the “pilgrimage” with the help of a Broward Sheriff’s Office escort to the synagogue he leads, Downtown Jewish Center Chabad, 900 E. Broward Blvd.
