Eruv - Vocabulary Word of the day

An eruv is a boundary recognised by Jewish law, within which certain activities are permitted on Shabbat that would not be permitted otherwise. Apparently, there is a prohibition against carrying objects to or from a home, or enclosed area. Jewish communities will often build an eruv (boundary) to enclose their community to allow more mobility and flexibility in observing Shabbat.
