Sharon has an Eruv and is maintained under the direct supervision of Rabbi Meir Sendor of Young Israel of Sharon. With our Eruv volunteers, the Eruv is checked on a weekly rotation basis to insure that it is intact and that all necessary repairs are made.
Founded in 1990, the Sharon Eruv, was constructed and maintained in close consultation with its original Rav HaMakhshir, Rav Shimon Eider, Ztz"l. We are grateful for the profound Torah wisdom, halakhic guidance and personal attention we received from Rav Eider, Ztz"l, and we mourn his loss with all Klal Yisrael. We are thankful and honored to have Rav Moshe Heinemann, Shlit"a, as our current Rav HaMakhshir.
