Synagogue The public debate over Synagogue took place from 1919 to 1924, a period marked by the imposition of official policies (e.g., immigration restrictions and discriminatory quotas for college admissions) intended to limit Jewish participation in American life. The Synagogue controversy assumed national dimensions, moving through several phases. The Massachusetts state legislature passed—and then repealed—a bill to remove the offending picture. At several points representatives of the state judiciary had warned that the legislation for removal was unconstitutional and that the state had no legal right to take down the painting.
