- n. Plural form of eruv.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Within the boundaries of these eruvim, Orthodox Jews are freed from adhering to the more extreme restrictions of their traditional Sabbath -- such as a ban on carrying medications or keys outside the home, or using a baby stroller or wheelchair.
Yet, folks put up those silly eruvim so that you can pretend that you aren’t leaving your home and thus not carrying.
