A serious religious conflict in
New York was averted when a
prominent State Senator withdrew
a seemingly innocent bill to adopt
a year-round Daylight Saving
Time. Senator John Marchi, Staten
Island Republican, informed Rabbi
Moshe Sherer, the executive presi-
dent of Agudath Israel of America,
who had brought the religious im-
plications of the bill to his attention,
that he will not ask for passage of
Marchi, chairman of the Senate
Committee oh the City of New
York, introduced a bill to make
Daylight Saving Time mandatory
throughout the year in order to
give an extra hour of daylight to
homeward-bound school children
and working women. Rabbi Sherer
pointed out to Senator Marchi that
Daylight Saving Time during the
winter would create a major pnib-
lem for observant Jews.
According to Jewish religious
law, the earliest time when morn-
ing prayers can commence is one
hour before sunrise. During the
wintertime, (the sun rises at ap-
proximately 7:15 a.m. (Eastern
Standard Time), and prayers can-
not begin before 6:15 a.m. By
advancing the clock for one hour,
the observant Jew would not be
able to begin his prayers until 7:15
a.m., which would create a serious
conflict for thousands of religious
Jews whose jobs require their being
at work at an early hour.
Upon careful study of the prob-
lem, Senator Marchi informed
Rabbi Sherer that, in light of the
religious implications involved, he
will not ask for passage of his bill.
