Menorah Case

Jewish Law Students’ Association and JGrads Pittsburgh present: Separation of Church and State, Religion in Public VS. Religion as a Private Affair.

Join us for a reenactment of the Landmark First Amendment Case of County of Allegheny V. American Civil Liberties Union (1989) concerning the display of a Menorah at Pittsburgh’s City-County Building.
