- n. Plural form of eruv.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are dozens of eruvin in Jewish communities across the region, many of which go unnoticed.
Subsequently, some arrests have been made, and as the city waits for the inevitable retaliation which will probably involve a Hasidim strike force constructing a bunch of eruvin in the trendy part of town at around 12:30pm when all the Hipsters are asleep the local news is all over the story like a tallis on a rabbi.
Religious environments, kashrut, eruvin, synagogues and yeshivot are in abundance.
I will check in berkovits’s book, but his answer was probably along the lines of “talmud eruvin states that shmita may be raised in cases of economic necessity, kal vahomer, and because we shouldn’t rely on non-jews, and should be self-sustaining, we should just declare shmita not applicable.” aqirah iqar min ha-torah and all that
