A Reason I Made Aliyah, Moved to Israel

I'm public school educated, New York City, then Great Neck. At some point it was made very clear to me that the United States is a Christian country. Yes, other religions are permitted, but the religious freedom in the early days was specifically for various Christian denominations, not for Judaism, Hinduism, Islam etc.

Being "tolerated" just wasn't good enough for me, so when I discovered Zionism and Betar, I had a solution to my problem. So, it's rather ironic that 40 years later, the basic issue is big news today in the states.
