你每周去的是基督教的教堂还是犹太人的教堂呢?如果你愿意,你可以去任何一种宗教场所。宗教自由并不是全世界普遍都享有的自由。以美国为例,宗教自由是在宪法第一修正案中才规定的,在1789年订定。不久之后,当乔治华盛顿在1790817日到罗德岛参访时,有部分犹太人在罗德岛州新港 (Newport) 区的犹太集会时,递交乔治华盛顿一份恭贺文。

Do you go to church or temple? If you want to, you can go to whatever kind of religious institution you prefer. This kind of religious freedom doesn't exist everywhere in the world. In the United States, freedom of religion is upheld by the First Amendment to the Constitution. This amendment was written in 1789. Not long after, the members of the Hebrew Congregation in Newport, Rhode Island, presented George Washington with a congratulatory address when he visited their city on August 17, 1790.
