Dear Rabbi Schneier,

America is not a Jewish State. Residents of this country are not only entitled to religious freedom, but are protected by our Constitution and Bill of Rights to practice their respective religions as you are well aware. However, as our founding fathers ensured, we are also protected against imposition of religion—which is what you are proposing by seeking the “permission” of a public official.
It is disappointing to see that a leader representing the Jewish community would not respect the sovereignty of our country’s laws and its people’s rights. This is either a display of unfortunate misinterpretation or blatant manipulation. Either way, it is an affront to our community and to those wishing to maintain the freedoms for which our founding fathers fought.
