Maintaining the Eruv
The Rabbinic Vaad or their representatives will check the Eruv each and every week prior to Shabbas or Yom Tov. Every attachment and connection point- be it a length of wire between two poles or the lechi attachment on any of its poles- as well as the quality of all fences used as parts of the border will be carefully checked by visual inspection.
The eruv checkers will complete minor repairs.
We have a hotline, which you should use every Friday afternoon to check the eruv's status. The The eruv's weekly status will also be posted online at: www.rocklanderuv.org where you will also find useful information about the eruv, as well as information about our community and other nearby communities.
The major expenses involved in the eruv's upkeep are: the weekly inspections, repair costs (labor and equipment), liability insurance, the website and the hotline. An annual donation of $52 towards maintenance is respectfully requested.
