Man Lost His Job For Not Being Jewish Enough

Bosses at a Brooklyn nonprofit hid a man from his Orthodox colleagues because he didn’t look Jewish enough, he claims.

Co-workers at HASC Center questioned Timur Yakubov, 25, constantly as to whether he was Jewish — and angrily glared at him when he said he wasn’t a practicing Jew, he alleges.

When he complained about the peer pressure to be more religious, he was fired, Yakubov says in a Brooklyn federal wrongful-termination suit.

An HASC spokesman called the lawsuit “untrue and offensive.”
