On April 15, 2001, The Record reported that "Orthodox leaders say Tenafly's eruv has been vandalized several times in recent months, and police are investigating." The vandalism began in December, when U.S. District Judge William G. Bassler issued a temporary restraining order allowing the eruv to remain while the court case proceeds. Those that are caught tampering with the eruv risk being charged with a bias crime.
