The North Charles Community Eruv, Inc. is a non-profit organization that maintains an Eruv district, encompassing parts of Cambridge and Somerville. An eruv is a bounded space within which Jews who adhere to traditional religious law can “carry” objects in public spaces on the Sabbath, something they are normally prohibited from doing. “Carrying” in this context includes everything from toting bags to pushing strollers and wheelchairs to wearing knapsacks. An eruv therefore is of great benefit to families with small children, the elderly, and the disabled.
