Allen Rothenberg and Sons

Rothenberg has been recognized by members of Congress for the work he has done to promote justice in American society.[2][3][4][5] In a congressional tribute held on Capitol Hill, Rothenberg was honored for his efforts and accomplishments[6] in advancing greater religious equality in America.[7] [8] Rothenberg helped spearhead the fight to eliminate religious discrimination in the workplace.[9] His work was instrumental in passing new legislation that defended the rights of all employees to observe the dictates of their faith, by obligating employers to make “reasonable accommodations” for their religious employees.[10][11][12][13][14] Rothenberg has been appointed as a special state Attorney General.[15]
