Eruv Membership Letter

Dear Friends,

Shana tova! This has been a challenging year for most of us as we struggle to deal with the complications that the pandemic has placed on all of our lives. We hope that this upcoming year will, with time, provide alleviation from these challenges.

We are grateful that despite the pandemic the eruv has managed to remain up consistently over the year. We want to thank our rabbinic leadership who have been active helping to guide the halakhic questions surrounding the eruv: Rabbi Chaim Jachter (our Rav HaMakhshir) and Rabbis David Roth and Dani Passow who are able to provide local rabbinic support. We appreciate their efforts in this important community endeavor.

We are also appreciative of the hard work and dedication of the eruv checkers. This volunteer group does tremendous work in allowing the eruv to function on a week in- week out basis. We are in need of additional eruv checkers to help ease the responsibility of those who are currently checking. This entails a commitment to check about once every three weeks.

A big thank you goes out to Rachel Spiller who continues her tireless efforts to keep the eruv up during the year. She works behind the scenes with local police officials, politicians and construction companies helping address complications which could cause the eruv to be down on any given Shabbat. We also want to thank Amy Robert who continues to organize the volunteers to make sure each section of the eruv is covered every week.

The eruv finances remain in good standing. However, our budget relies on members of the community continuing to (or starting to if they haven’t in the past) contribute annual dues. We have determined that no additional increase in dues are needed this year. As always, we will assess the eruv’s financial stability during the course of the year and will come back to the community for additional help if circumstances necessitate it.

Thanks as always to our dedicated Board members Meyer Potashman, Amy Robert and Avi Klausner. Jon Roth has stepped down from the Board as he and his wife moved out of town. We want to thank him for his years of service as an active Board member- he will be missed. We are pleased that Rebecca Peyser Boiarsky has joined the Board.

We would again encourage people to become members of the eruv by supporting it financially and/or by volunteering to help with checking. Contributions can be made online at or can be mailed to the address above. If you would like to volunteer to check the eruv or if you have any questions please email us at:

We hope this year is a happy and healthy one for everyone. Shana Tova,

Oren Weisberg
