    Gerald Marks, the attorney for Rabbi Avraham Bernstein, says a local ordinance defining a religious venue may be changed, according to Galvin. The change would be part of a legal settlement.

    Bernstein’s neighbor, Paul Sweda, went to the Zoning Board claiming that Bernstein’s operating a house of worship in his Stillwells Corner Road home, is in violation of the township’s zoning ordinances.
    Bernstein has sued the township, alleging that his constitutional rights to practice his religion in his home were violated. [APP]
