Jewish Community Reacts to ID

"Jewish educators, parents and attorneys have been deeply involved in the debate, and national organizations have taken public positions on the subject. All are gearing up for the battles to come," according to E.B. Solomont writing in The Forward, a Jewish newsweekly published in New York.

"For large parts of the Jewish community, the notion that the Bible is a source of scientific authority is objectionable. But beyond that, it's probably the most prominent effort today to put religion into public schools, and therefore that causes it to be an important subject for us," said Marc Stern, general counsel of the American Jewish Congress.
