Members of Congregation Toras Chaim have been meeting in homes within the homeowners association for almost three years. Late last year, a neighbor became upset about the gatherings and filed a lawsuit seeking to have the meetings stopped.

Liberty Institute stepped in to defend the congregation’s right to continue its religious meetings in the home.
