What is an Eruv?

An eruv chatzerot (Hebrew: עירוב חצרות‎), commonly known in English as a "community eruv", is a symbolic boundary based on physical demarcations that allows Jews who observe the traditional rules concerning Shabbat to carry items outside on Shabbat. Carrying is an act that would otherwise be forbidden during Shabbat.

In many locales, the community eruv relies on utility poles and wires to create the physical boundary of the eruv. As such, those poles and wires that are considered part of the eruv are visually inspected for integrity every week.

Below is a map of the Eruv for the East Side suburbs of Cleveland, including parts of Beachwood, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, South Euclid, and University Heights.

Please note that Boundary streets are considered outside the Eruv.
