London Eruv Update

Received via email, from an "English" reader: TIH: The erection of the Edgware eruv, an area in which Orthodox Jews are allowed to carry items and push pushchairs and wheelchairs on the Sabbath, has been delayed while organisers await delivery of several poles. Barnet Council granted a licence in December for the religious zone, which is to be constructed using poles, interconnecting wires, walls, train lines and other geographical features. It had been hoped that the eruv would be up and running in January, but Harvey Brown, chairman of the Edgware Eruv Committee, did not want to speculate on when the new date would be. He said: "We are still waiting for two or three poles which will hopefully be erected and then we can proceed." Once the eruv is in place, Rabbi Zvi Lieberman, of the Edgware Adath Yisroel synagogue, Hale Lane, Edgware, will inspect it to make sure it follows religious guidelines. The zone will run from Stonegrove to northern Edgware via Mill Hill.
