Anti-defamation League Advocates Exceptions to Sunday Closing Law

The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith expressed its opposition last night to proposed Sunday closing laws which contain “no specific exception for those who observe the Sabbath on a day other than Sunday.” The ADL view was voiced in a resolution adopted at the closing session of the 44th annual convention of the organization.

In another resolution, the ADL said it would not “oppose Jewish participation in interfaith baccalaureate services if they are voluntary and held on off-school, non-religious premises separate from commencement exercises.” The League is opposed to baccalaureate service in the public schools.
