Following religious values taught as a youth can be difficult for many when entering adulthood, but Charm City Tribe, a two-year-old program in the Jewish Community Center of Greater Baltimore, aspires to reconnect people in their 20s and 30s to Judaic practices they may have lost along the road to independence. Local families funded a three-year grant initiative to reach non-Orthodox young Jewish adults and generate positive attitudes toward Jewish culture. Director of the program Rabbi Jessy Gross organizes events to connect the community and works individually with young people to help them identify their stances on Judaism.

WASHINGTON - Joshua Davey arrived for his freshman year at Northwest College, a small, private institution near Seattle, with a state-financed scholarship and a desire to major in pastoral studies and become a minister. Within days, Davey ran into a problem: The state of Washington's Constitution prohibits the use of state aid to pay for religious instruction. Davey would have to change his major or give up the scholarship. "My religious beliefs are the only reason for me to seek a college education," Davey said later, explaining why he declined to change his major at the start of his freshman and sophomore years, when he was again eligible for the scholarship.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court made a bold statement yesterday for the separation of church and state, ruling that states may deny public scholarship money to students seeking religious training. In a surprisingly strong 7-2 opinion written by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, the court said that while the First Amendment doesn't always prohibit public funding of religious education, it also does not compel states to fund such education. Washington state, which denied a merit-based state scholarship to a student who wanted to become a minister, was perfectly in its rights to do so, the justices said.

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court took up a case yesterday that will test how far the government can go in funding religion, agreeing to decide whether states that give college scholarships must pay for a student's training to become a cleric. The outcome could redraw the line that separates church and state in education. Last year, the justices said states may subsidize children to attend religious schools through a voucher program. The 5-4 ruling said this taxpayer money for church schools did not violate the First Amendment's ban on an "establishment of religion."
