US Postal Service Ends Historic Ban On Jews

WASHINGTON – The United States Postal Service announced Thursday that it would no longer deliver mail on Saturdays, ending an historic prohibition on Jewish mailcarriers. Members of the Jewish faith are prohibited from working on Saturdays, as per the customs of the Sabbath. Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe announced yesterday plans to end weekend delivery, as “the times have changed, and we feel it has become necessary to welcome the Jewish members of our community into the world of mail delivery”. The move, which is expected to save 2 billion dollars in the coming fiscal year, removes one of the last remaining barriers to equal opportunity in America.
