I stopped reading the responses about halfway down page two. However, I have yet to see a response to the quote mentioned above. To speak a little about OP's post, I feel that accommodation of religious beliefs is something institutions should strive for but not necessarily be required to give. Furthermore, they at least should not deny the same rights to, as OP mentioned, prison inmates who are not Jewish. I could say that my made-up religion requires the consumption of Kosher food.
