Jewish Congregation Sued Again!

On Monday, March 2, 2015, the City of Dallas, Texas—the nation’s ninth largest city—sued Liberty Institute client Congregation Toras Chaim, a small Orthodox Jewish community of families that meets in a private home for prayer, worship, and religious study. The lawsuit by the City comes on the heels of Congregation Toras Chaim’s winning a lawsuit filed by a disgruntled neighbor and homeowner’s association.

Following that victory on February 4, the congregation believed they were safe and done with litigation efforts seeking to prevent their religious worship. But this week, the City of Dallas started proceedings that would shut down Congregation Toras Chaim.

Ironically, the suit was launched only two days before the Jewish festival of Purim. Purim celebrates Esther’s protection of the Jewish people from execution by Haman—an official of Persia, which is present-day Iran—and on the eve of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s historic address before a joint session of Congress on Iran’s nuclear threat to the Jewish state of Israel.    Read_More_button
