On May 2, 2001, The Record reported that "Tenafly Mayor Ann Moscovitz and an Orthodox rabbi squared off in federal court..., each offering radically different accounts of what happened when they met last September to settle the eruv dispute." Rabbi Shmuel Goldin testified that Moscovitz said she didn't want the eruv because she didn't want more Orthodox Jews to move into the town. "Moscovitz testified that those sentiments were not her own, that she was simply relaying to Goldin the fears that some constituents had expressed to her about allowing an eruv in town."
