Lawsuit Filed Against NJ Township For Anti-Orthodox Jewish Discrimination

The New Jersey township of Jackson, an enclave on the outskirts of the 50,000 member Orthodox Jewish town of Lakewood, is being sued for policies which discriminate against the civil rights of Orthodox Jews. Aimed at the public officials behind the enforcement of zoning laws, the lawsuit aims to ease the restrictions which have made it harder for Orthodox Jews to pray or even live within the township. The suit was filed by New Jersey’s attorney general, Gurbir Grewal, who said, “…bias and hate have no home in New Jersey, and we will not allow some vocal residents’ intolerance to drive local government decisions.” Discrimination against building sukkahs, erecting eruvs and keeping houses of worship safe have all been weaponized against Orthodox Jews, according to the suit.
