Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

Two weeks ago, I spoke in Shul about a novel concept I termed a "Canopy-Eruv." Consisting of a series of thin strings stretched across an intersection, the "Canopy-Eruv" allows one to carry underneath the canopy on Shabbos even according to the position of Rav Moshe Feinstein zt"l.

I am happy to report that the first phase of our project of installing a series of "Canopy-Eruvin" is completed. This "Canopy-Eruv" stretches across Willett Street at the intersection of Broome Street, and allows one to carry under the canopy.

Please note that one needs to follow a specific "route" to carry from the 500 Grand buildings across to the Orenstein and Bialystoker buildings. Here's how it works:

1. One exits the 500 Buildings via the C section onto Broome Street. Please note that one may not carry on the sidewalk in front of the 500 Buildings.

2. Once on Broome Street, one crosses Willett Street, staying under the canopy of strings.

3. After crossing Willett Street, continue walking straight through the property to the back of the Orenstein Building. The gates will be open on Shabbos, allowing access.

4. Enter the Orenstein Building through the rear. If one walks through the front yard of the Orenstein Building, one can access the Bialystoker through the Potkorony Building.

Please feel free to be in touch with me at with any questions or feedback.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
