The Manhattan Eruv Needs Your Help

The Manhattan Eruv is one of the world’s largest, and most impressive Eruvin. It reaches from the UWS to the UES, from Harlem to Battery Park. It is run quietly, with incredible efficiency and humility; supervised by the Mechon L’Hoyroa in Monsey and run by Rabbis Adam Mintz, Yosie Levine, and Gavriel Bellino.

The Eruv continues to function every Shabbat, but requires weekly supervision and maintenance that are largely financed by local synagogues and institutions. As costs rise and synagogue budgets are tightened, we must now turn to individuals and families to make ends meet. Won’t you please help us bridge the gap in our Eruv’s financial structure during this month of Adar?

Why Adar? In addition to the spirit of Purim generosity, we are reminded that Shushan was a walled city, and that Manhattan - unfortunately - is not.
