Responding to the unanimous decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in Fulton et al. v. City of Philadelphia, Rabbi Yaakov Menken, Managing Director of the Coalition for Jewish Values, made the following statement:
This decision is a victory for religious freedom, for tolerance, and for children. Philadelphia’s policy locked religious agencies out of the foster care system unless they were willing to openly violate their religious beliefs, and children who needed caring families paid the price. We are most impressed and grateful that the entire Court chose the obviously correct course.
