New Jersey district bans religious music at school winter concerts
BORDENTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ — A New Jersey school district has issued a new rule that says no Christmas music can be played at this year’s winter concerts.
There won’t be any Hanukkah or Kwanzaa music allowed, either.
The superintendent of the district told parents that there were some parents who questioned last year’s musical selections.
After a legal review, a decision was made that religious music should not be part of the elementary school programs.
