The Boca Raton Jewish Community has an Eruv
which allows its members to carry parcels on Shabbat. Several years ago, the boundaries
of the eruv where expanded and the eruv now consists of four sections. Our aim is to
have the entire eruv, all four sections, kosher and functional every Shabbos.
However, the sectional construction of the eruv enables parts to be usable even
in the event that a particular section(s) is broken and irreparable before
Shabbos. Please check with the shul on Friday to ensure the sections you wish to
utilize are operational.
