Manhattan EruvWelcome to the Manhattan Eruv!
Begun in 1999 as a local eruv on the Upper West Side, the Manhattan Eruv now encloses most of the borough of Manhattan. The eruv, build and supervised by the Mechon L'Hoyroa in Monsey, has been endorsed and supported by local rabbis and community leaders. It allows countless numbers of Jews throughout the borough to carry and to push baby carriages on Shabbat therefore enhancing both the observance and enjoyment of the holy day.
This website serves as a portal to the Manhattan Eruv. It features an announcement each Friday about the status of the eruv. Our eruv has never been down but still make sure to check each week. It also provides an interactive map that identifies the often confusing eruv boundaries. Finally, the website provides the opportunity to contribute in order to support the continued maintenance of the eruv.
