Please join 1st Ward Alderman Judy Fiske, 3rd Ward Alderman Melissa Wynne and 7th Ward Alderman Eleanor Revelle on Tues. Feb. 27 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. in room 2404 for a discussion about the proposed expansion of the Evanston Eruv.  Jewish faith leaders in Evanston are proposing the expansion of the existing eruv east of the North Shore Channel. 

Under Jewish law, it is forbidden to carry anything from an enclosed “private” domain into an open “public” area on the Sabbath. An eruv, a technical enclosure that surrounds both private and public domains, create a large private domain in which carrying things is permitted on the Sabbath.
