To the Entire Choshuva Kehila שיחיו׳


 

Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you and your entire families a Gemar Chasima Tova and a gut gebentsht yur, full of Gezunteh nachas and Simcha.

 

I have received many inquiries in the last 24 hours regarding the current status of the Forshay Eiruv. I have looked into the matter and have spoken to the head Rov that oversees the maintanance and halachic status of the eiruv, my dear Yedid, Rav Chaim Schabes שיחי׳  and  I have concluded that the eiruv is UP and KOSHER.

 

I am fully in agreement with the current statement on the Rockland Eiruv website which reads as follows "The Rabbonim of the Vaad HaEruv state, concerning the Forshay section (Section 3), that the Eruv is UP and may be used"  I also agree with their second statement, "There is a makom to be machmir regarding the karfifos within this section which will IY"H be dealt with after Yom tov Yom Tov. You may want to consult your Rav" 

 

I therefore request that all community members go their Chashuva Rabbonim  and follow their guidance, my statement here is only to the members of our kehila. In my view, the eiruv this week has the same status it had last week and the week before, it is absolutely kosher and usable. That being said, in just about every community eiruv across the country there are certain kullos that are relied upon some of which are based on a machlokes rishonim, some are based machlokes achronim and poskim, this is not a new thing, it is something which has been going on for hundreds of years. In this vein, the status of a karfaif is of major debate both in how to qualify it and whether it’s relevant to a location that inside a town.

 

My conclusion is that the halachic status of the eiruv has not changed, however, as a general rule, in all situations, community eiruvin should only be used Letzorech, this is the reason they were established. As a general rule, if one doesn’t have a Shabbos need and isn’t inconvenienced, they should avoid using *any* eiruv. Obviously, for a woman to be able to come to Shul on Yom Kippur would qualify.

 

In conclusion, the eiruv can be used in the same way it has since its construction. I want to thank the entire Rockland Eiruv committee and its Rabbonim for maintaining the eiruv at a very high standard. As someone that has inspected many other community eiruvin, we have a lot to be proud of thanks to their mesirus nefesh.

 

Beahava ubeyididus,
