This Eruv Status Announcement is issued by the Administrator of the Eruv Dr Peter Kloot on Friday 22nd April, 2010 (9 Iyar, 5770) at 9.30pm Melbourne time on behalf of the Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Victoria (COSV).
Owing to construction works by a public utility company, at the moment the whole Melbourne Eruv is pasul.
We are working towards restoring part of the old Eruv line, which would provide a Kosher Eruv for the areas west of Grange / Jasper Roads and north of South Road.
If that work can be successfully completed, we expect it to be done by noon today.
Public announcements will be made as soon as possible confirming the status of the Eruv.
