Boundaries of the Southfield eruv.

Goldberg said the eruv should
be "legitimately recognized."
Rabbi Goldberg said the par-
ticular area of Southfield was
chosen to service "the tradi-
tional community in western
Southfield," specifically the con-
gregation of Young Israel of
Southfield.
Boundaries were determined
according to the availability of
utility poles "that were conform-
ing to the directions of the
wires." An Oak Park eruv is
scheduled to be completed in
February.
Basically, the presence of an
eruv makes a Talmudically
designated public domain into a
private domain.
In Southfield, the boundaries
of the eruv are along the north
side of 11 Mile Road (not includ-
ing the pedestrian walkway) as
the southern boundary,
Berkshire-Ranchwood on the
east, a jog along 12 Mile Road
(including Cong. Beth Achim,
Colony Park Apts. and Laurel
Woods Apts., but not the United
Hebrew Schools building) on the
north, and parts of the Bell
Road area (including Cong.
Shaarey Zedek) on the west.
Rabbi Goldberg pointed out,
however, that the designated
eruv area west of Bell Road
(dotted line on map) will not be
in effect until April.
The eruv has no effect on the
non-Shabbat observing and the
general community. In filet, un-
less one knows what to look for
(not including the River Rouge
banks), one would not notice it
at all
As stipulated by Torah law,
the eruv "frame" must take the
form of a tzurat hapesach., or
structure of a door frame — two
sides and a lintel. This door
frame configuratioon must con-
tinue in succession• around the
eruv perimeter. The prescribed
"frame," according to Rabbi
Goldberg, must be a minimum
of 40 inches in height, and the
lintel must pass directly over
the two gide poles without any-
thing interceding.
In the case of the Southfield
eruv, a one-inch ground molding

purchased from Detroit Edison,
capped with a furniture tip, is
used as a marker on the utility
poles. This marker — lechi is
nailed all the way up to the
most available horizontal wire
on the pole.
The eruv markers were
created with the cooperation of
the utility companies, since it is
their lines and poles which are
used in some cases to be part of
the eruv's frame.
In addition to the utility
poles, the banks of the Rouge
River were used in forming the
westernmost boundary. Accord-
ing to Rabbi Goldberg, a natural
wall or cliff — ascending or de-
scending — can be used to form
the perimeters of the eruv
boundary. Monofilament wires
were used to complete the west
section.
In order to gain permission to
use public facilities for the con-
struction of the eruv, Rabbi
Goldberg had numerous, meet-
ings with Southfield officials
and representatives of the
Michigan Bell Telephone Co.,
Detroit Edison and the Michi-
gan Department of Transporta-
tion.
One problem the eruv direc-
tors had to face was the separa-
tion of church and state princi-
ple. The eruv supporters had to
prove that by using public
areas, they were not putting the
government in a position of sup-
porting religion, according to
Rabbi Reuven Drucker of Young
Israel of Greenfield, and Young
Israel of Oak-Woods, who is di-
recting the construction of the
Oak Park eruv. When attorneys
for the eruv project proved that
the cities would not be promot-
ing religion, but rather accom-
modating it, they (Southfield
and Oak Pal) gave their sup-
port, he said.
Last year, a lawsuit was
brought in New York challeng-
ing the creation of an eruv in
the Rockaways. The New York
Times reported that the suit
claimed the eruv violated the
-constitutional ban on gov-
ernmental actions that helped to
