Eruv Status

The eruvs are checked on Friday before Shabbat. You can find out the status of the eruvim by contacting 732-247-ERUV.

You can also find out the status of the Eruvim by subscribing to the Eruv Mailing List). Each Friday afternoon, you will get an email telling you the status of the Eruvim.

Who maintains the Highland Park and New Brunswick Eruvim?"

The eruvs are maintained by the Vaad of Raritan Valley.

Why are there three eruvs?

The eruv around Highland Park is the main eruv. The Donaldson Park Extension is an extension of the Highland Park eruv that allows people to enjoy the entire park. However, sometimes floods and storms knock down the wires in the park, so there is a backup line that allows the Highland Park Eruv to still be up if the lines in the park are knocked down.

The New Brunswick is built as an extension of the Highland Prk Eruv, so you can carry from one eruv to the other. The status of the Highland Park eruv is not affected by the status of the New Brunswick eruv. However, since  New Brunswick is an extension of the Eruv in Highland Park, if the Highland Park main eruv is down, none of the eruvs are up.

Can I carry from the Highland Park Eruv to New Brunswick Eruv?

If both eruvs are up, the Highland Park Eruv and the New Brunswick eruv are considered a single eruv. It is permitted to walk from one to the other.
