Our Eruv

The Rabbi Philip Rabinowitz Memorial Eruv covers the majority of the portions of the District of Columbia within walking distance of Kesher Israel. All of downtown Washington, including the National Mall, memorials, The White House, Capitol, the Smithsonian museums, and the National Gallery of Art, are inside the Eruv.

The eruv is under the joint supervision of Kesher Israel's Rabbi, Hyim Shafner, and Rabbi Haim Jachter, a pre-eminent scholar on Eruvin, rabbi of Shaarei Orah in Teaneck, NJ, and Dayan on the Beit Din of Elizabeth.

To check on the eruv status, call (240) 630-2042.  The status is posted every Friday morning.
