Church and State in Mamaroneck…


For all the years we’ve covered municipal governments, here’s one that threw us for a Loop this morning.  An email from the Village of Mamaroneck gives us a reminder that, in accordance with Village Code, no construction will be allowed from tonight at sundown through tomorrow in honor of the observance of Yom Kippur.

The spirit of the law gives Jewish observers a little peace and quiet on one of the holiest days of the year.
