field Mayor Donald Fracassi was
"extremely helpful" in the de-
velopment process. He helped
the eruv builders gain access to
Added to the Halachic stipula-
tions that had to be satisfied,
two other conditions had to be
met. First, legal access had to be
gained to property within the
eruv boundaries. This -was
achieved by renting for $1 from
the City of Southfield all of the
property contained within the
eruv limits. Secondly, since the
eruv is aimed at being a unify-
ing force in the community, ac-
cording to Rabi Goldberg, an
eruv chatzeirot had to be estab-
The eruv chatzeirot, a sym-
bolic sharing of food, is achieved
when a member of the commu-
nity obtains a box of matzot for
the rest of the community, who
become co-owners of the matzot.
According to Rabbi Goldberg,
"this is considered as if the in-

However, the creation of the
eruv does not give one the ex-
cuse to participate in activities
that are not in the spirit of
Shabbat. As Rabbi Goldberg de-
scribes in his user's manual, ac-

• Ball playing.
• Carrying or dragging large
or heavy objects.
• Any form of gardening ac-
• Mailing letters.
• Picking up a pre-paid item
in a store.
• Carrying items to be used
• Moving muktza — an object
that is forbidden to move on
Shabbat or Yom Tov, even in
the house, specifically -those
items whose purpose is a forbid-
den Shabbat activity, such as
writing materials, tools, wallets. '
Rabbi Goldberg warns that
one should assume that the eruv
is down unless it is proven
otherwise. To alert the commu-
nity, a special eruv, hotline has
been set up, 353-ERUV, that
gives an updated message stat-
ing whether or not the eruv is
in effect for the coming Shabbat.
Weekly checks on foot and by
car of the boundary are made.
A break or tear in the eruv
would render it unfit. It can be
caused by the breaking of a
marker or moving a wire, ac-
cording to Rabbi Drucker.
