Southfield Eruv
Lightens Sabbath

BY HEIDI PRESS
Local News Editor

For the first time in its 136-year
history, Detroit Jewry has a com-
munity eruv.
A symbolic, physical boundary
created, in effect, to enhance the ob-
servance of Shabbat, the eruv,
Southfield, has been operational
since the Shabbat of Jan. 10-11.
What the eruv will allow the ob-
servant to do on Shabbat is carry,
without an eruv a forbidd4 action
on Shabbat. But in an eruv,\the ac-
tion of carrying is limited to "small
necessities," talit, book, handker-
chief, key, or shoes in winter, for
example, so that one can change
from boots to be more comfortable
during services.
Mothers of small children who

would otherwise remain indoors on
the Shabbat will be able in an eruv
to carry or wheel their children to
services or to a friend's home for a
Shabbat meal. The disabled who
would otherwise be unable to use
their wheelchairs or walkers outside
on Shabbat also will benefit from the
presence of the eruv.
According to Rabbi Elimelech
Goldberg, spiritual leader of Young
Israel of Southfield and director of
the Southfield eruv project, the crea-
tion of the eruv is "helpful and ap-
preciated by the community." He
said the establishment of the eruv
enhances the observance of Shabbat
because "more people can come to
services ... and more people can
visit with each other." Rabbi
