The Richmond Hill Community Eruv is in need of funds. It is now possible to sponsor the Eruv for a particular Shabbat for $100.
Donations can be made here:
Please indicate in the ‘special instructions’, “Eruv Fund” when you Donate. Thank you for your generousity!
or please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. If one will be walking close to the eruv borders, please contact us HERE in advance for exact details
Please help, as we ALL benefit from the Eruv. The Eruv is something we all rely on and often take for granted. If you have not yet contributed, please consider doing so in order to ensure that the Eruv can be checked and maintained regularly.
Why Should I Help?
Sometimes we give with good intentions and hope our money helps but in this case we know an investment will help
An investment will help reduce chillul Shabbos by thousands of Jews, and in this sense it is a one time investment, with returns every single week
Additionally, the investment will help to draw more Orthodox people, strengthening the communities and hopefully strengthening other less affiliated Jews
How can I help?
Tax deductable receipts will be sent:
Use the ‘donations’ menu option on the side bar and write ‘Eruv’ under the Paypal description to pay with a credit card.
Send a cheque payable to The Richmond Hill Country Shul. Please tag the cheque “ERUV FUND”.
Thank you for your support. May you and your family be blessed with good health, much nachas, and many simchos.
What is an Eruv?
An Eruv ‘fences in’ a given area; turning it into a private domain; allowing one to carry and push strollers etc. outside on Shabbat. It is unquestionably a fundamental necessity in helping people uphold the sanctity of Shabbat and a major stepping stone towards the growth and strength of a vibrant northern Jewish community.
