A Crown Heights Eiruv, Is It Even Really Wanted? Also, Rabbi Zajac Responds to A Letter From The Rebbe On The Topic
The argument for and against an eiruv in the Crown Heights community has raged for years, and has recently been reignited with a series of Halchic responsa discovered and prepared on the topic.
From a Kol Koreh signed onto by multiple leading Chabad Rabbonim, to Kuntreisim authored by numerous Rabanim on the topic, the discussion and arguments continue to rage.
At present, without the endorsement of the Rabonim of Crown Heights and regardless of the Halachic potential, there is no accepted Eiruv.
Yet an earlier question should be asked. Does the Crown Heights community even want an Eiruv?
Please fill out the attached survey so that we may answer this question. The data will be published in a follow up article.
A recent Kuntres, published by Rabbi Shmuel Zajac, on the opinion of the Chabad Rabbeim and Eruvin, was not widely published, and is being diseminated here for everyone to learn.
A few weeks ago a new answer of the Rebbe came out on this matter, and being that there was an ongoing discussion on the meaning of the letter, Rabbi Zajac penned an essay on his own responding to the way others had translated it.
