The annual cost of maintaining the Manhattan Eruv is approximately $100,000. The expenses include the costs for the Eruv’s halachic supervision, weekly checks to see if it’s gone down, and the construction costs to repair it. All monies raised go directly to these costs and do not support any local synagogue. Thank you for contributing to this important community symbol whose meaning is to increase the peace between neighbors.
