Federal court backs synagogue in dispute with regional transit authority
February 17, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: In 2020, an Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Tampa sought to advertise its Hanukkah celebration on the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority’s bus route; the transit authority, citing a policy against religious advertising, refused to publish the ad.
The synagogue, Young Israel of Tampa, filed suit in 2021, and a federal district court has now halted enforcement of the transit authority’s policy.
