Sealed With A Kiss
Wyatt Earp engaged in a Jewish ritual while he was on the run.
When Wyatt Earp fled Arizona after the Vendetta Ride, he and his cohorts headed through New Mexico on the way to Colorado. They stopped in Albuquerque, where Wyatt stayed with Jewish businessman Henry Jaffa. There are reports that Wyatt—perhaps following the example of his host—kissed the mezuzah, a ritual often followed by observant Jews when entering a home. The mezuzah is an encased piece of parchment with Hebrew verses from the Torah inscribed on it. It is and would have been unusual for a Christian (even a nominal one like Wyatt) to do such a thing.
