Two small Orthodox congregations in Florida won a ruling that allows them to hold services above a bank. A U.S. appeals court ruled Wednesday that moving services for congregants at Midrash Sephardi and Young Israel of Bal Harbor, both in Surfside, Fla., would discriminate against religious institutions and burden elderly and ill members. The decision was based on the 2000 Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.
