Group opposed to eruv urges petitions

"'The eruv is not the issue,' Jack Kringstein, the vice president of Jewish People Opposed to the Eruv and a resident of Remsenburg, said at the meeting. He added that the eruv would change the community for the worse by bringing in unwelcome people." (From the above article.)

Opponents to the eruv in Westhampton Beach have said that it is not a civil rights issue and that they are not anti-Semitic towards Orthodox Jews.

Really? Who are the "unwelcome people" who "would change the community for the worse"?

Imagine if that were said that about any other group.

Westhampton Beach parents angry over new math requirement

I am for the increased math requirement. I said so at the BOE meeting. I abstained because I wanted the public debate to continue, since there was no reason why the issue affecting the class of 2013 had to be voted on 9/14/09. I felt that the benefit of continuing the debate was that it would help convince parents that the change was positive. Despite the vote being taken, the debate continues - see the "Viewpoint" columns of the 9/24 issue of the SHP." Sep 24, 09 9:57 AM

New proposal for religious boundary on public roads spurs questions in Westhampton Beach

In June of 2007 the Palo Alto Eruv was approved.
Palo Alto City Attorney Gary Baum stated that Palo Alto was "legally compelled" to allow the eruv.
"It's not like erecting a cross or a Star of David or any symbol of any religion because all it is is a fishing line," he said.
"It's not symbolic in any way, which is why it's not a mixture of church and state."

Attorney Warns Quogue Village Not To Reject Eruv Application

My above comment that was “removed because it is a duplicate, off-topic or contains inappropriate content” was not. I just provided a link to “The Daily Show” video from 3/23/11: “The Thin Jew Line”, viewed 258,989 times. It was in context with other satirical comments about the eruv. " Mar 21, 12 1:32 PM

Khanh Sports And EH Eyewear Expands To Second Location

Khanh is a very customer friendly businessman. He knows his products and his enthusiasm about them is contagious. I bought an ElliptiGO from him after a test ride and he even delivered to me, bringing it from East Hampton to Westhampton Beach. I'm glad that he's been able to open this second store, an endeavor that he has worked on for a long time. Long live the Khanh!" May 8, 13 11:48 PM
