The Eruv of Jacksonville, Inc.,
has developed and maintains the Eruv within the Mandarin area of
Jacksonville under the supervision of Rabbi Manish Spitz
of Miami. Rabbi Nosson Kaiser of Etz Chaim Synagogue serves
as Rav Hamachshir. The Eruv represents a milestone in the growth
of our community. It has been endorsed by area Rabbis of all
affiliations and by Mayor John Delaney and Governor Jeb Bush as
a positive community endeavor.
The Eruv begins on Scott Mill Road at the I-295 underpass.
Going northward, it includes the Sylvan Lane area and continues
along the western side of Scott Mill Rd. to Beauclerc Road. At
the intersection of San Jose Blvd. (Route 13), the Eruv follows
a southerly path along the western side of San Jose Blvd. At the
intersection of Sunbeam Rd., the Eruv makes an easterly turn on
the northern side of the road until Hood Road where the border
turns south. At Old Hood Road, the Eruv begins its southern
border, turning west along Hood Road, crossing Old St. Augustine
Road and continuing west along the northern side of Hartley Road
where it continues across San Jose Blvd. and reconnects with a
fence line along I-295.
The Ramada Inn and LaQuinta Inn are both included within
the Eruv. As both hotels are close to the boundary of the Eruv,
we suggest you contact the Eruv Hotline for exact Shabbat
