A weekly roundup of important headlines and exciting things happening at First Liberty.
Liberty Stops Violence
Senior Counsel Jeremy Dys and Rabbi Yaakov Menken—Managing Director at the Coalition for Jewish Values—wrote an op-ed for Newsweek. They discussed the troubling increase in hate crimes and violence against Jewish communities across America:
“Such intimidation of religious people undermines the promise of the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. Hatred and harassment toward those peacefully exercising their religion is evil and must be overcome with good. Anyone using intimidation and harassment toward those peacefully practicing their religion must be condemned in the strongest terms possible lest intimidation and harassment turn to harm from violence.
“Violent antisemitism should be opposed regardless of where on the globe it occurs. In America, violent antisemitism flows from the breakdown of religious liberty. Thus, while Americans may disagree over religion there should be no disagreement on our buttressing the free exercise of religion for all people.”
