The Senate has added $50 million for the security of Jewish sites and other non-profit institutions to its homeland security spending bill. The Senate last Friday passed an amendment to the 2005 spending bill providing for grants to secure high-risk non-profit institutions, a move pushed by several Jewish groups including the United Jewish Communities, Orthodox Union and American Jewish Congress. Several other Jewish groups, including the Reform and Reconstructionist movements, opposed the bill out of fear that it would breach the constitutional separation of church and state.
