More criminal damage to Jewish boundary reported in North Jersey

MAHWAH – For the third time in recent months, a ritualistic Jewish boundary known as a eruv on a town utility pole has been damaged, according to a report.

In Jewish tradition, an eruv is a symbolic boundary, used in Orthodox Jewish communities, allowing activities to take place on the Jewish Sabbath outside of the home.

Over the summer, the township ordered a New York-based Jewish community to cease building the boundaries or face fines.
