MTA’s Yeshiva Fellowship Talmidim Learn Halachot of Building an Eruv

Even the pouring rain couldn’t deter Yeshiva University High School for Boys’ (MTA) ninth grade Yeshiva Fellowship talmidim from visiting Passaic, NJ, to examine the community’s eruv last Tuesday. The tour was led by world-renowned eruv expert Rabbi Micha Shotkin, and the boys were accompanied by their fellowship mashgiach, Rabbi Baruch Pesach Mendelson. Rabbi Shotkin explained to the boys the reason behind an eruv, different problems that arise when trying to build the eruv, and the halachot of karmelit and karpif. Rabbi Shotkin also showed the students his equipment as well as how he uses a camera stabilizer to steady his laser. He then showed the students the lechis and korahs which he uses. Following the tour, the fellowship was treated to lunch at King of Delancey, after which they returned to the Yeshiva, soaking wet, but drenched with satisfaction.
