SAN JOSE, Calif. — A Jewish parent who wanted to display an inflatable menorah at a Christmas tree lighting organized by the PTA at a school in the Carmel, California, dropped her religious discrimination case against the Carmel Unified School District. A federal judge last week denied her request to force the district to display the menorah, saying that her First Amendment claims were unlikely to succeed because the U.S. Supreme Court has previously ruled that the Christmas tree, unlike the menorah, is not a religious symbol.
