Jewish Groups Clash Over Eruv Proposal

Lines were drawn during Monday's Quogue Village Board meeting as the East End Eruv Association made a pitch before a packed board room to erect an Eruv, a symbolic religious boundary, within the borders of Quogue under the village's sign ordnance.

The East End Eruv Association, which is embroiled in a discrimination suit with the villages of Quogue, Westhampton Beach and Town of Southampton, butted heads with a 300-strong organization, called Jewish People for the Betterment of Westhampton Beach. That group said they don't want an eruv and will fight to ensure that it is not installed.
