i think t he idea of an eruv is a terrible one next these same folks will be stonning our cars when we ride through this area on their sabbath and holy days. Being of the Jewish faith I have experienced this in the town of Monsey in Rockland county New York and other Rockland county communites.It will allow them to dictate what business can open and when
Furthermore this religious sect make their own tradition as they go on there is nothing in the bible that dictates these laws

The eruv will divide and destroy a wonderful community of all religions
Knowing the destruction it brings as a jewish person I am terrified that our wonderful community will be ruined by the beliefs of this group
We all love Wedthampton
Jews and non jews alike and need to do everything in our power to keep the wonderful blend that makes the sea breezesveven more apppealing
