Tax Credits for Non-Public Schools

The Union of American Hebrew Congregations has historically opposed using public funds for non-public elementary and secondary schools, believing that such aid would infringe the separation of church and state and have damaging impact on public schools.

Therefore, consistent with the traditional opposition of American Reform Judaism, we oppose recent proposals to allow income tax credits for tuition paid to such non-public schools.
