Toyota doesn’t need to be reminded how serious their production and PR problem is right now. Neither does the Forest Hills Jewish Center in Queens. For Georgetown, Ken., this is a crisis in the family and a test of faith:

As local employer Toyota Motor Corp struggles with a vehicle safety crisis, residents of Georgetown are closing ranks and turning to prayer.

“They are our great corporate citizen. We’ve got to pray for Toyota,” State Representative Charlie Hoffman told community leaders at a breakfast on the outskirts of town and near the automaker’s flagship U.S. plant in rolling Kentucky horse country.
