Sponsored to mark the 5th Anniversary of the Elstree and Borehamwood Eruv!

Welcome to the Elstree and Borehamwood Eruv. An eruv is a way of identifying an area within which carrying is permitted on the Sabbath (Shabbat). The Eruv has been in use since Shabbat 26/27 November 2010 - 19/20 Kislev 5771 Parashat Vayeshev.

The Eruv is managed by the Ebor Eruv Charitable Trust, a cross-community organisation set-up to operate the Eruv in Elstree and Borehamwood and it is supervised by the London Beth Din.

The Eruv and Red Road Bridge
Update 14 October 2015

We are delighted to be able to inform you that the pedestrian bridge from Red Road into Parkfields has now been reopened and the Eruv poles have been re-installed. Subject to the regular Friday checks, the Eruv will return to its original route from this coming Shabbat. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the picnic table near the playground in the park is OUTSIDE of the Eruv.

We are very grateful to the contractors (J Murphy and Sons Limited) working on behalf of Network Rail, who went out of their way to help us maintain the integrity of the Eruv during the bridge works.

The Eruv Boundary in Parkfields

Please be aware that the Eruv Boundary runs within Parkfields (the park between Barham Avenue and Red Road). If you expect to be walking through the park, please check the detailed map on the "Map" page to see where the boundary is.


The maintenance of the Eruv needs ongoing funding, most of which comes from the members of the community who will use it. For more information, to donate other amounts, or to donate by other methods, please go to the "Donate Now" page.
