Funny, he doesn’t even have that much of a beard. The Police Academy was obviously doing this “lishmoh”

when there is a rule of general application that does not specifically target any one religious group, the plaintiff needs to prove that the rule served no legitimate purpose. This is a low standard and the govn’t will likely overcome it.

dont knock this kid. he is intitled as an american to join the NYPD. if it werent for changing rules, many of the police officers would still be on horses chasing indians…….times have changed, and so should the rules. the reality is, frum jewish men and women should be allowed to work in all public sectors.

It’s not a waste of time to pursue an honest job. Just because he was “warned” about something, doesn’t make it legitimate. Women and men of color were also “warned” years ago of their ineligibility to join NYPD! There’s plenty of both now serving in NYPD.
Fishel Litzman, stand up and stay strong. May Hashem guide you and bless you!

this has nothing to do about being jewish and the right to serve! its about rules and regs, you follow them you serve, you dont, you dont serve. he wants to be a cop, he should have known that. sorry. frivolous lawsuit!
