Erub Update

SJW Erub Update 4th December 2019

The St John’s Wood Erub Committee are excited to announce that our first eruv poles have been installed this week in preparation for the launch of the St John’s Wood Erub, b"h in 2020. 

The installation of our poles in the London Borough of Brent, form the north-west corner of the St John’s Wood Erub, which will eventually adjoin the soon to be Brondesbury Park Erub.

We have also made significant progress with our remaining locations and have completed s106 Agreements in both the City of Westminster and London Borough of Camden. We now await final approval for some pole relocations in Westminster which is expected in January 2020. Our friends at South Hampstead are also progressing their erub which will connect in the north and east. 

After many years of planning, our uniquely designed tapered poles are currently being manufactured and it is our hope that construction of the remainder of the erub will begin in early 2020. 

The Committee are extremely grateful for the hard work put in by our Architect, Daniel Rosenfelder and for the advice and support of Nechemya Abenson the London Beth Din Eruv Coordinator and Benson Construction, our specialist Groundworks contractor. We also express our thanks to the generous benefactors for their sponsorship of this project.

A programme of education, the erub website and other information will follow in Spring 2020 to allow the community to be informed about the halachic rules for use of the erub once it is established. There will also be opportunities to become a "Friend of the Erub" to support the ongoing maintenance of this communal provision.

Best wishes,
The St John’s Wood Erub Committee
