PIKESVILLE, Md. — Three Orthodox Jewish medics have charged the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company with religious discrimination, alleging they were barred from responding to calls unless they shaved their beards.

Matthias Goldstein, Brennan Gross and Avrohom Green have not responded to a call since January, when they were informed that their beards posed a safety concern, according to their charges filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
