Austin Eruv Lifestyle
An eruv is a symbolic perimeter placed around a Jewish community typically defined by existing utility poles and lines or established fences that transforms public space into communal space under Jewish law. An eruv is a place that religiously observant Jews can do certain activities on the religious sabbath, including carrying objects and pushing strollers or wheelchairs— which are activities that are normally prohibited between sunset on Friday and nightfall on Saturday. Although defined by a perimeter, it is formed by a ‘merging’ (the word eruv means ‘mixture’) of courtyards to include a larger area in which activities, such as sharing communal meals, can be carried out. An eruv is an unobtrusive and largely invisible boundary around a Jewish religious community.
The Austin Eruv Committee has sought to establish an eruv in Northwest Austin that will allow religiously observant Jews to push strollers or wheelchairs and carry items to synagogue or to friends’ homes on Shabbat. An eruv will be a major convenience to community members who are not currently able to fully celebrate Shabbat with their community. It will also make Austin more attractive for observant families looking to relocate.
The Dell Jewish Community Campus in located at the very geographical center of the Austin Eruv and is the focal point of the community.
