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 religionwhich 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 countrys laws and its peoples 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.
