This week, the Supreme Court ruled on the legality of public prayer at government meetings in the controversial case Town of Greece v. Galloway. In their first major verdict on the issue since the 1980’s, the Justices ruled against what many of us hold as a cornerstone of religious freedom: the ability to participate in our government without being required to be a part of an overtly sectarian prayer. Welton will speak with Rabbi David Saperstein, Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, about the importance of the case, potential applications for the ruling, and the possibility that this will further encourage some in majority religious groups to exclude others from the full participation in the public sphere.
