    In this panel, our presenters will discuss a number of case studies in which Jewish communities have availed themselves of the American legal system to achieve their own goals. Food labeling and supervision, land use regulations, and the endorsement of one or another religious group by the military all present situations in which secular institutions implemented policies that have helped the Jewish community in specific. In thinking about the effects of these policies, our presenters will consider how these policies might violate the Establishment Clause and why these policies might have been implemented despite this problem.
