Two sets of poles approved for Borehamwood Eruv 

A PLANNING application to erect four metal poles as part of a Jewish boundary in Borehamwood was approved at a meeting last night.

An Eruv, which allows Orthodox Jews to perform tasks on the Sabbath, must have a physical continuity - often using walls, fences and parts of the urban landscape to form borders.

However, where there is a gap made by roads or footpaths, a gateway must be formed to complete the boundary.

Therefore, two pairs of poles and connecting wires will be constructed across alleyways in Cowley Hill and between Redwood Rise and Abbots Place.

The Borehamwood Eruv was granted planning permission in 2007 and constructed in 2010, it was originally made up of 34 sets of poles around town.
