    I understand that collive is a news organisation, but one would hope it also has enough sense when it comes to that.
    None of Crown Heights rabbonim hold of it. None. Why you give these people voice?
    Very sad and disappointed by this publication.

    How is it relevant to say that Rabbi Schwartz is in his late 70s? Is seems like an attempt to portray him as incompetent or over the hills, and it strikes me as less than respectful and ageist. If you disagree with his ideas, then say so and present a counter-argument. Don’t resort to personal attacks that have nothing to do with the substance of the matter.

    I'm sorry, misleading headline

    By keeping one Shabbos according to halacha we will be
    redeemed from this bitter golus. Why create more problems
    than we already have. A plea to Cong. Ahavas Yisroel:
    Please live up to your name and help the rest of us bring
    Moshiach Now by strengthening our observance of
    Shabbos as it will surely bring the GEULAH immediately!
    Please remove that “eiruv” !!!

    People, please be mindful of the fact that feelings of hate between fellow Jews is far worse than using an eruv that is not approved by local Rabbis. The world is in need of salvation and we cannot get caught up in a new civil war in crown heights. These days we are all challenged with the temptation of far worse sins than using an eruv that is against the Crown heights Rabbis. If we cannot inspire others to follow the crown heights rabbis ruling with love, than the problem is with us. There is no room for hate on… Read more »

    Crown height not chabad

    It’s important for all to know that crown heights is NOT exclusively Lubavitch. It never was.

    In fact during the election of the Badatz the rebbe made it very clear that crown heights is not only Lubavitch and therefore the badatz can NOT be part of anything Lubavitch or have any authority within Lubavitch.

    ERUV IS POSUL!

    All those who will adhere to this eruv should know that it is a posul eruv and they are being mechalel shabbos. A rov who gives haskama on something not in his jurisdiction is going against halacha and his ruling is not valid. CROWN HEIGHTS IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE REBBE’S SHCHUNA – NOW MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, and I would not want to start up with the Rebbe. It doesn’t bode well for anyone who does. Anyone who feels the desperate need to go out on shabbos while carrying should move to a neighborhood that is okay with… Read more »

    Last but not least would he Daven upstairs or downstairs in 770. We have to know his Hashkofos!

    Whoever uses this eiruv just realize your playing with fire! Its actually very scary to think what will happen. When it comes to the Rebbes inyanim you dont play around, its not a joke.
    By Hey teves the Rebbe said whoever has a sefer in their home that was stolen is keeping a live bomb in their house. Someone didnt listen to the rebbe & the Rebbes words happened to him….

    To be called ‘chabad’ is to listen to the directives of the Rebbe not to be born to lubavitch parents or to be born in crown heights using the erev is against the Rebbes directives so those who use the eruv are not Chabad, yes they live in crown heights there are plenty of non lubavitchers among us. The eruv is up in crown heights but it’s not for the lubavitch community yes, sad that we came to this point but we do have all types among us, let the Chabad remain proud lubavitchers sticking to the Rebbes directives ALWAYS

    To all those saying CH is not Chabad...

    Face reality. Crown Heights was and will always be the Rebbes schunah! When all other types of Jews were rapidly leaving ch and selling their homes to goyim, the Rebbe was the only one who spoke against this and actively told his Chassidim to remain amd develop the community. So if not for the Rebbe, CH would not be what it is today. Lets keep the credit where it belongs & respect the Rebbes wishes who was outright against the eiruv. If other Jews are deciding nowadays to move into ch thats fine but they need to respect the rules… Read more »

Many of us understand that obviously such an Eruv is a) not according to the Rebbe’s instructions and b) is not according to the Alter Rebbe’s shulchan Aruch. Therefore we may not use it.

Now we have a fashion show, and pritzus galore prancing our streets on shabbos morning. Brace yourselves Crown Heights. The Lubavitcher Rebbe agreed with Rav Moshes Psak that it’s 100 percent assur to make an Eruv in Brooklyn. So did the Satmar Rov and every other Rebbe and Posek.… Read more »

    Please, I am pleading with you all…DON’T USE THIS ERUV! All 3 Rabbonim of Crown Heights are openly against it.

    Going against the Beis Din of your town publicly is worse than the issur of carrying on Shabbos (which may be
    בזמן הזה דרבנן) and is DANGEROUS.

    One who cannot accept the פסק דין of the Beis Din of their town are better off relocating to a town where the Rabbonim have a different opinion.

    Please do not use this Eruv.

    Is it only according to the Alter Rebbe?

    Which Halachic authority would say that an Eruv which is opposed by ALL local Rabbonim may be used? If I am not mistaken, you would not find one serious halachich authority that will say that one may use an Eruv which is opposed by local Rabbonim.

    This goes beyond the technicalities of an Eruv, it goes into basic Halacha principles of authority of Rabbonim.

    For the record: When setting up the beis din, the Rebbe insisted that it not be a CHABAD beis din.

    He insisted that the elections be open to EVERY single JEWISH member of the Crown Hights community!  This way – al pi torah/halacha – the Beis Din has jurisdiction over the ENTIRE community! – not just a specific shul(s).

    For members of the community to seek outside “rabbonim” to OVERIDE the UNANIMOUS opinion of Crown Heights RABBONIM – is clearly against, mentclichkeit, yosher, Torah and Hashem!

    Breaking the Eruv does not cause Jews to be M’chalel Shabbos since the Eruv does not halachically exist at all.
    The only effect of breaking the eruv is so that people who think they have a shita to rely on, do not have the physical eruv to carry out their Shita.

    The person who sets up the eruv is causing chillul shabbos, and the person who destroys it is preventing chillul shabbos.

    Who are you to decide what halachically exists? You can say the Rebbe is against it and this Eruv does not follow the Alter Rebbe’s shita, and I would agree. However, to say that there is no halachic premise for this Eruv, is foolish. You, my friend, are a part of the problem. Shame on you! If anyone should walk down the street ashamed, it should be those who favor damaging the Eruv.

    So now we know.

    Who is frum and who is not.
    Who is a chossid and who is not
    Who cares about the Torah and mitzvos.
    And those who don’t will use the eiruv and violate shabbos cv”s..
    Just like they violate the laws af kashrus (cholov AKUM) and taharas mishpacha (lack of kosher clothing and intermingling).
    You have been warned. The eruv will be torn down. Don’t use it.

    The Crown Heights Beis DIn is not the Crown Heights Lubavitch Beis Din.
    Guest
    The Crown Heights Beis DIn is not the Crown Heights Lubavitch Beis Din.

    In gimmel tamuz 5746 Rabbi Eliezer Zirkind wrote to the Rebbe that the elected Crown Heights Beis Din will be called
    “בי”ד רבני ליובאוויטש – קראון הייטס”
    The Rebbe wrote sharply against this proposed name and wrote:
    פירוש הצעתם – על פי שולחן ערוך – שכל אלה שבשכונה ואינם ליובאוויטש יבחרו רבנים ובית דין וכו’.

    The Rebbe foresaw these things coming and insured that the elected Beis Din is to be called the “Crown Heights Beis Din” period, for all those who live in Crown Heights.

    We too suffer from this. The poskim and leading Roshi Yeshiva of Flatbush (some who were almost 90 years old at the time) said no to follow the Psak Rav Moshe Feinstein and some baal haabos went and paid some unheard of Rov from Monsey who gave his hechsher. Now we have a fashion show, and pritzus galore prancing our streets on shabbos morning. Brace yourselves Crown Heights. The Lubavitcher Rebbe agreed with Rav Moshes Psak that it’s 100 percent assur to make an Eruv in Brooklyn. So did the Satmar Rov and every other Rebbe and Posek. It was… Read more »

    Reminding some history

    Rabbi Schwartz says this isn’t for the Chabad community and Mr. Ganau is quoted with similar sentiments. Hereby, dividing between the community and the chabad community.
    Well, that Shul wouldn’t have been here if not for our Bachurim who kept up the Shabbis and yom Tov Minyanim for decades! In dust, in freezing cold, in scirtching heat, the Bachurim were always there! The conflict they have with Rabbi Kurshenbaum can’t erase that historical factor. For them to turn around and make it sound like there’s a “us” and there’s a “them” is painful and unfair.

    The most deplorable effect generated by this development will be that the women of Crown Heights will now have a free pass to leave their homes on shabbos. We are opening a can of worms here. a toddler bearing woman that is being given the option to leave ones home on shabbos will lead to them neglecting their duties as wife and balabusta. The Rabonim were always adamant about women knowing their rightful place in the community, and they instituted strict laws against the use of any eiruv to ensure that their wishes were upheld with the greatest of urgency.… Read more »

    For those that are worried about the rebbes approach to ahavas yisroel. If you want to say that the Rebbe was against Machlokes then The Rebbe was against Machlakos and therefore against starting things that cause Machlokes. For example, putting up an eiruv that the majority of people disagree with. That would be starting machlokes. But in reality, having ahavas yisroel did not stop the Rebbe from fighting and storming and screaming about shleimus haaretz and mi hu yehudi and many other things. So having ahavas yisroel does not mean that one cannot make a machaah when something that is… Read more »

    The crown heights community is a Chabad Community all those who are part of the confines of that community MUST adhere to the laws and customs.

    It is a shame that members of crown heights are fishing other “Rabbis” to help them break those laws.

    The Lubavitcher Rebbe was AGAINST AN EIRUV. PERIOD.

    Who is “Rabbi Schwartz” and why are we endorsing him to go against the Rebbe?

    We are Lubavitch NOT Modern Orthodox!

    Lubavitch has clear methods of ” bringing people closer to bring moshiach” we dont need modern Orthodox “Rabbis” showing us how.

American law may say that a person has the freedom to do what he wants, but Halacha gives the power to the Rabbanim to “dictate” and control how the community lives and to excommunicate those who dont follow. People are able to choose which community they live in. But once they choose the community, the are bound to live by the community rules.

It’s up to us to hold our standards and not carry, just like we do out of town. Our children know that we don’t use the eruv but those who hold by it can.

    YOU ARE LUBAVITCHER SHLUCHIM. You’re supposed to bring other Jews closer! I think an eruv is an excellent idea. You’re preventing those who carry on shabbbat to carry and break shabbat! Even if they don’t keep shabbat or whatever, you’re still helping them with one aspect! Just because there is an eruv, there is no need to feel threatened. Just don’t use it. Don’t be jerks about it. And the rebbe would probably allow one in this day and age.

    Honoring tradition, obeying the great leaders of the recent past, and modest dress and behavior earns the respect of our neighbors and helps them to resist the demagogues who call for violence.

    Imagine if this was a new CH restaurant that will be opened on shabbos and a mystery rabbi/hechsher is claimed to give it a heter mechira

    you write “Crown height not chabad It’s important for all to know that crown heights is NOT exclusively Lubavitch. It never was. In fact during the election of the Badatz the rebbe made it very clear that crown heights is not only Lubavitch and therefore the badatz can NOT be part of anything Lubavitch or have any authority within Lubavitch” ALL RESIDENTS OF CH INCLUDING ALL THE MOSDOS IN CH (LUBAVITCH OR NON LUBAVITCH) ARE UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF THE BADATZ OF CH. INCLUDING THE SHUL KOL ISRAEL ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY TOOK PART OF ALL THE ELECTIONS DONE IN CH… Read more »

    @146 calm down

    I think the reason why people are going nuts and not calming down, is because they can only feel at ease with themselves when they are putting others down. I think it’s clear that the Eiruv is not being organised by the Chabad community and is therefore not intended to serve the needs of the Chabad community. If that’s the case, why the uproar? Because machlokes is fun! Divisiveness makes me look frummer! If I become more tolerant and accepting of other expressions of Orthodox Judaism, I might lose my connection with Chabad because it is so, so strong. We… Read more »

    from Rabbi Heller

    Rabbi Heller just addressed the eiruv issue in kolel and asked to share his words. The following was written up by one of the people in attendance. 1. Eiruvin is from the three most difficult sugiyos in halacha. To make an eiruv in a city (which is a different ballgame then a bungalow colony etc). Is extremely complicated, there are only יחידים in our dor that know how to do it properly. It’s like a heart surgery, you cant just be a regular dr. you have to be a regular dr plus specialise in hearts… He said its actually harder… Read more »

    The eruv is not for everyone If you are not happy with the eruv being up, just don’t use it, but there are some people that are happy with it being put up,

    But not all who live in the area are Lubavitch. And for Jews who want affordable housing, kosher stores and a shul for shabbos, an eruv is a must. For most Shabbos is about community, and not locking women up at home with babies and nowhere to go or still shlepping to your mothers house. Plus, these people can actually sustain a community here as prices go up its doubtful many Lubavitchers will be able to afford to stay.

    I have been living in CH for decades and Crown Heights has changed a lot since the Rebbi was here, and everyone is talking about the eruv being up and there are more important things going on in CH then someone putting up an eruv, that could prevent someone from carrying on Shabbos, get a life and stop talking about taking it down,

    I grew up in Monsey, and hardly anyone uses the eruv there. The children play in their backyards, while the mothers enjoy some peace and quiet inside. It is actually pretty rare to see a stroller out, because it is prohibited to push it over grass. The up and coming neighborhood of Pomona does not have an eruv yet, and people are still moving there in droves. There are plenty of opportunities for women to go out on Shabbos, without an eruv being around Crown Heights. Eastern Parkway is always full of married women walking, on Shabbos afternoons. Just because… Read more »

    The Rebbe may have been against an Eiruv.
    Maybe.
    The Rebbe was definitely against our Rabonim fighting openly with each other.
    For sure.
