Letters: Making the call on an eruv

August 23, 2012

Re "Religious boundaries," Postscript, Aug. 18

Formal religion continues inexorably to decline under the advance of science. Michael A. Helfand's assertion that the proposed eruv in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., would be "barely discernible" is his opinion and a decision that is not his to make.

The fact remains that an eruv does constitute a perceptible "presence of consequence" in a neighborhood, which it is no religion's to impose.
