Finding Title VII's exemption for religious institutions "is not limited to facilities where prayer takes place," a magistrate judge in Pennsylvania has dismissed a suit against a Jewish community center brought by an evangelical Christian who claims she was fired because she attended a "Jews for Jesus" concert.
