Sadly, this is the sick twisted world we live in.

We just gotta keep fighting for what we believe in!

Go Rabbi Lieblich!

There have been fights in other American cities, and the shluchim have won out in the end. Keep up the good work! Just because of the controversy alone, there was plenty of Pirsumei Nissa.

Didn’t we go that route countless times and won even in the supreme court? I think this guy should contact headquarters for some guidance.

Since when does an x-mas tree have nothing to do with x-mas, a religious holiday?

Headquarters probably won’t/can’t help, but there are plenty of shluchim that have fought the good fight and won. Search on google and call them. Sometimes a simple letter from an attorney stating the facts is enough to get them to realize their mistake. Nat Lewins office will give you such a letter. Other options include lobbying the officials one by one… Or at last resort, suing the city. You have to way your options and decide carefully. In Massachusetts, the following Shluchim/Rabonim have fought, and won in recent years: Bronstein, Andover, MA, Bleich, Wellesley, MA, Kievman, Milford, MA, and Green,… Read more »

Why do we have to fight for this? We live in a Christian country and Boruch hashem we can observe and keep the mitzvos peacefully. Why do we have to make a whole commotion about equal rights etc. etc.

The Supreme Court did not rule in the Chabad menorah case that you have the right to put a menorah up on public property even if a city does not want it. They ruled that a city is allowed to permit a menorah if it so chooses. Cities may deny menorahs so long as they deny the religious holiday symbols of all other religions. An X-mas tree is not considered to be a religious symbol.

Thanks for stating that an xmas tree is not a religious symbol. We ignorant ones didn’t know that.

the problem is not that the menorah wasnt allowed. that is most unfortunate but not shocking or “fight worthy” the problem is the fact that the city allows an x-mas tree and not a menorah, it is pure anti-semitism and needs to be fought and cleared out because it is not okay. and for all the other comments about the south, you have obviously never heard of southern hospitality or never visited the south because despite this, generally the south is a very warm and open place. as stated in the article the city is usually very diverse. this is… Read more »

This is NOT a christian country. It’s a country where everyone is equal and free to worship or not worship in the way they want.

So it is very important for every citizen, no matter what religion they belong to, to fight this.

Again, just because there is a christian majority in the USA does not make it a christian country.
