Thin strips of PVC piping placed on utility poles around a New Jersey town bordering New York have stirred worries that an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community plans to expand. Along with a measure to limit Mahwah’s parks to town residents, it has led to backlash from those who say the opposition raises worries about anti-Semitism. The county’s prosecutor ordered the police not to enforce that measure after Mahwah’s police chief raised concerns that complaints were targeting Jews.
