    Wyatt Cenac learns about an invisible religious boundary causing controversy in Westhampton Beach.

    The same thing applies to St Ives.

    Re the st ives eruv…….

    I sincerely sympathise withe the Jewish community who are unable to practise their sabbath easily without an easy to locate eruv…..but I must say that a “real virtual” eruv established with technology ie google maps, + a hand held remote web device (ultimately an iPhone with built-in app) would be the most considerate solution for the entire community (not just Jewish).

    I checked out the ajnwatch site and they clearly show the ACA reporter inciting that redneck mob. Someone should forward that blog to the authorities and let them see for themselves what a so-called respectable program is stirring up
