Syd­ney eruv re­jected

The Jewish Chronicle - - World News - DAN GOLD­BERG

JEWISH LEAD­ERS in Syd­ney are irate af­ter a lo­cal coun­cil de­nied an ap­pli­ca­tion to build an eruv.

Ku-ring-gai Coun­cil, on Syd­ney’s north shore, voted on Tues­day night to re­ject a plan to build a 20-kilo­me­tre sym­bolic bound­ary that would al­low Or­tho­dox Jews to push prams and car- ry ob­jects on Shab­bat. The North­ern Eruv Group has ap­pealed against the de­ci­sion.

A pe­ti­tion signed by some 1200 lo­cals, ar­gued that the eruv would cre­ate a “ghetto of Jewish peo­ple” and “pol­lute the en­vi­ron­ment”.
