This has got to be a first in anyone’s book. While touring a Miami grocery store this past Friday, Florida Governor Rick Scott was approached by two Rabbis’ who gifted him with an embroidered “Governor Rick Scott Yamaka. Scott was helping stock the store shelves as part of his ‘Let’s Get to Work’ initiative, when he was approached with the gift.
Later that night, Scott was attending a Shabbat dinner in North Miami, and we can only assume that he was sporting his new Yamaka.
For those of you smarty pant Jews who think that we misspelled Yarmulke, look here. Yarmulke, Kippa, Kippot and Yamaka are all accepted descriptive terms.
Here is a pictorial of Governor Rick Scott ‘Getting to work’ at the Sedano’s supermarket in Miami.
