“The Curious Case of Kiryas Joel” highlights the two essential religious components of the First Amendment — the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause — and explains the importance of both prongs in preserving religious liberty and protecting the rights of believers as well as non-believers. Lou Grumet exhibited great courage when he stood up for principle and openly battled with the most powerful politicians in New York State. This book brilliantly explains why it was so important for him to undertake that battle and preserve the First Amendment.”
