they have a church, right? the noise ordinance has been changed, why can't the church ring its bells every day at the same time as the call to prayer?

Great idea...all the churches could ring at once.

Why that would be a violation of the separation of Church and State.

That would just amplify the muezzin's call. He will be heard over any bells and the bells will call attention to him.
