The Barnet Eruv

An Eruv is an area within which observant Jews can carry or push objects on Shabbat without violating the Jewish law that prohibits carrying anything except within the home. 

An Eruv must be 'completely enclosed'. The area is not enclosed by building a special wall round it - most of it is enclosed by existing natural boundaries like railway lines or walls. What matters is that the area is completely enclosed by boundaries that conform to Jewish law. 

The Barnet Eruv has been up and running for some years now. For further information and to see if it is in operation please go to
