LA Eruv

*Dear Friend and Neighbor,*

* **We find ourselves in a crisis this year – the eruv right now is
completely out of funds, and therefore the eruv is appealing to you for
continued and additional support.*

* **Maintaining our eruv requires a team of Torah scholars inspecting miles
of fences, wires, adapters, walls and hillsides every week. The Eruv has a
dedicated crew in the field to fix breaks, move walls, build fences or
otherwise face the unexpected with an immediate response, and an excellent
track record, as you are surely aware of. The eruv is also required to
maintain adequate insurance for operations. This does not come
cheaply and requires
your continued support. *

* **Expenses have been reduced on a monthly basis to the extent possible
without compromising one iota in adherence to halacha and vigilance in
checking. Without further funds the eruv will simply cease to operate until
such time as funds become available. AS OF NOW, THE ERUV IS SCHEDULED TO BE
DOWN NEXT SHABBOS, and future shabosim if we are unable to properly maintain

* **The Eruv budget can be met if each family in the Kehilla shoulders a
small part of the burden. Only with a steady base of community support
and an ongoing flow of sponsors will we be able to continue to cover the
operating costs. Your family, friends, neighbors and community at large all
appreciate your support.*

Angeles, CA 90035*
