Church, State, and the Jewish Community

By Leo Pfeffer

Eugene Borowitz, October 13, 1978

The author discusses the American Jewish community's involvement during the past few decades in several public debates about church and state, including debates related to abortion, school prayer and the public funding if parochial schools. The author notes that many Orthodox figures have sided with the Catholic Church regarding the legality of abortion. The American Jewish community remains committed to the separation of religion and state, he writes.
