Title:
Rabbi of Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"

“To have kids expressing a theological principle at 7 A.M. over the loudspeaker is not a serious way to do it…It is not that we don’t want God in our lives. We just don’t want [Him] trivialized.”
