No one's reading into anything, though. Just stating facts that he's not THAT religious if he lets his kids participate in Halloween. Even Modern Orthodox, who are assimilated with secular culture, don't do that. The co-workers in your story don't sound like Orthodox Jews, either. Orthodox Jews get excited to share shift work with non-Jews because it means they can cover the secular/Christian holidays for them while the non-Jews can cover the Jewish holidays for them. Going into church sanctuaries or mosques is verboten if you're following Jewish law as the Orthodox do. Akiva Cohen-type "Orthodox" would probably do it anyway.
Once again you are reading from the manual, instead of observing actual behaviors. Of course most Jews even Orthodox will enter a church. Funerals and Weddings happen all the time. My friends were Akiva Cohen type Orthodox. Wear the beanie, only eat Kosher, etc. The main rule with regard to churches was that they could not participate in what was going on. Respectfully observing was fine. Most of the Pastors, Priests and Rabbi’s in my town were members of a local “interfaith council”. Which was a clever way of saying they all had a long running Tuesday Night poker game. Life happens. Community happens. People are different than rules.

In Cohen’s area the only groups that do maintain such rigid standards to said rules are the Ultra Orthodox Jews, mainly the Hasidim, (whom the other Jews as a rule hate.) and the more deeply Evangelical Christian groups. (Whom the other Christians are largely embarrassed by).

But jews arent allowed in church, they murdered jesus and they are slavers.
I know this is supposed to be funny, but an autistic point of clarification:

Even Jewish law doesn't allow Jews in church (at least not in the sanctuary). It falls under idolatry, one of the three most serious sins.

As for "interfaith" bullshit, I guarantee the rabbis taking part were not Orthodox. Non-Orthodox Jews do not adhere to Jewish law and don't make any bones about it.

In conclusion, don't use a Kiwi Farms goy as your authoritative source of knowledge on Jewish law. This is 100% glol territory.

... What's the status on this guy? Nothingburger? Is he actually still building a case against the Farms or what?
We don't know. I know that his application to copyright his children's pictures are pending (at least the last time we checked).
The dude put his Twitter in Protected Mode, but he's still engaging with LawTwitter and KickVic though.

My understanding is he cannot sue retroactively, only new uses or something but IANAL.
That'd be in line with how the law generally reacts to things like this. I wouldn't put it past our hero to try and file something exceptional, but I suspect he might be busy looking for Sacred Ointment in preparation for the Texas boot Ty Beard is going to be delivering to his anus in the near future.

"...the average processing time for registration applicationsis currently seven months, leaving ample time to sue after the Register’s decision, even for infringement that began before submission of an application..." (Fourth Estate Public Benefit Corp v. Wallstreet.com LLC)

The registration is required before initiating the lawsuit but the suit can include infringements before the registration as a copyright existed from creation of the work, not registration. So he can sue for the previous infringement and not have it thrown out on the technical grounds of not having a registration (see above case).

Now, there's some caveats, the big one being compensatory damages versus statutory damages; our new overlord Akiva is going to have a hell of a time proving that he suffered monetary damages off a kiwifarms post since I'm pretty sure he wasn't monetizing the "daughter on couch". OR WAS HE :pickle::pickle::pickle::pickle:

The more complicated part is contributory infringement- like when a website owner tells a copyright holder to pound sand because he believes the material in question is fair use. I'm not sure, but I wonder if Akiva could send another DMCA and then sue seeking statutory damages now that he has a registered copyright and the website owner failed to honor the DMCA after the registration was issued. Fair use is still a defense, but it would be more scary than trying to sue based on compensatory damages only.
