Intro: The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 38 Building a Community Eruv
Have you heard people say, “Do you live in the eruv?” or “Which eruv is that in?” What exactly is an eruv? How does a community go about creating a eruv and what does it accomplish?
Join me as we discover the history of where eruvs come from and then continue on to the practical process of building one in the modern world.
I’m excited to share with you that my community in Richardson, TX is at the brink of completing our community eruv, so this is a very exciting topic for me to share with you!!
