WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Jewish groups generally welcomed President Obama's emendations to the White House faith-based initiative established by his predecessor.
Obama signed a new executive director Wednesday emending the order by President George W. Bush that set up the office.
Under the new order, faith-based groups receiving government funds to provide services such as relief or rehabilitation must make clear to beneficiaries that there are non-faith-based alternatives.
