The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal to a ruling that allows an eruv, or Sabbath boundary, to be built in a New Jersey city. The court let stand a lower court ruling that the city of Tenafly’s denial of the eruv’s construction was motivated by a desire to prevent Orthodox Jews from moving into the city. The Orthodox Union praised the court’s move.
