President Bush touted a Jewish organization’s work in providing tsunami relief in a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. Bush used the speech Thursday morning to acknowledge the faith community’s “spirit of prayer and service,” and acknowledged the work that several religious groups, including the American Jewish World Service, have done in raising money for relief from December’s tsunami. “Look at the list of organizations bringing relief to the people from Indonesia to Sri Lanka,” Bush said. “They’re full of religious names.”
