Bill to Amend N. Y. Sunday Law Sponsored by Jewish Sabbath Alliance of America

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A bill to amend the Sunday law of New York City, so as to exempt from its provisions those who observe the Seventh Day as the Sabbath, is sponsored by the Jewish Sabbath Alliance of America, which has for many years sought to secure relief for Sabbath observers.

The Alliance reports that it is in constant communication with the members of the Legislature, urging them to assist in passing the legislation to permit those who are conscientious observers, to attend to their work and labor and business on Sunday.

The Alliance has received the assurance of several members of the Legislature, and it is confident that the prospects for the adoption of this legislation are now more favorable than ever before.
