Circuit Court

Out Of Bounds On Eruv

A federal appeals court ruling allowing an eruv in Tenafly, N.J., has established a precedent that will discourage future lawsuits against eruvs elsewhere in the United States, supporters of the eruv say. In the latest legal backing for the eruv, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last week that the Bergen County town discriminated against a group of Orthodox Jews who put up the symbolic boundary two years ago. The eruv creates an area that allows objects to be carried outside of one’s home from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday.
