Rabbi Maurice Eisendrath Testifies Against Constitutional Amendment for School Prayer

School Prayer

Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath, president of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, testifies before the House Judiciary Committee against manatory prayer in public school and against a proposed constitutional amendment that would authorize school prayers.

This amendment has been introduced in reaction to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down mandatory school prayers. According to Rabbi Eisendrath, tampering with the First Amendment could "unravel the historic fabric of thc Bill of Rights," and "Prayer must come from the heart and not from the school board."
