said he often feels jealous of
American Jews' feeling of
freedom.
But in this free America,
Chabad's efforts to instill that
Jewish pride have met with
legal obstacles unheard of
elsewhere in the world.
This issue is the separation
of church and state, and
Chabad's adversaries have
been and continue to be
Jewish groups and largely
Jewish lawyers.
The 18-foot menorah lit in
Chicago's Daley Plaza last
week shines by the grace of a
preliminary court order,
handed down last month by
U.S. District Court Judge
James Parsons.
"To deny them such use (of
Daley Plaza) merely because
they are religious organiza-
tions seeking to make
religious expression is
discrimination in its rankest
form. It goes against every
grain of Americanism," Par-
sons said.
Parsons' court order was
necessary because the Public
Building Commission, a
governmental body that ad-
ministers Daley Plaza, was
concerned the menorah
might violate the establish-
ment clause of the Constitu-
tion, which separates church
and state.
Lubavitch had erected its
menorah for six years in
Daley Plaza, which stands
before Chicago's municipal
buildings.
Rabbi Daniel Moscowitz,
regional director of Lubavitch
Chabad of Illionis, said the
Public Building Commission
was threatened last year with
lawsuits by various organiza-
tions and required a $100,000
litigation bond from Chabad,
which was paid by an
anonymous donor.
The American Jewish Con-
gress brought the initial case
against the city of Chicago in
November 1985 for displaying
a creche on public property.
In a famous summary judg-
ment in 1986 favoring the
creche, Judge Frank McGarr
said in his ruling, "This is a
Christian nation."
The Chicago Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council
takes a firm stand against the
menorah. "It's been the same
position for many years. We
do not back religious symbols
of any kind on public proper-
ty," said JCRC associate
director Glady Iser.
AJCongress is now watch-
ing the Chicago case to deter-
mine if it will take a position.
