I disagree with the first footnote of the full article, as to the propriety of publishing this article while K’lal Yisrael is in an Eis Tzorah. This is our job currently here in the USA – cf the Chasam Sofer at the end of Brachos as to how Talmidei Chachomin are Marbim Shalom in the world as if the more Milchamta Shel Torah there is in the world, the less other Milchoma there will be

The Chasam sofer also said when the Eruv was built in the city of Pressburg ( today Bratislava) “it is simple logic that you are able and obligated to build Eruvin in your cities to allow carrying. And the Rebbe quoted this chasam sofer when asked for the Rebbe opinion on building Eruvin in cities.

How do you address all the Eruvin the Rebbe supported, which is well documented, including lekutei sichos chelek yud aleph which mentions the mitzvah to carry in a Eruv.

Chelek yud alef is not a page number

Mitzvah to carry in an eruv? What are you talking about?

Maybe give an actual Mareh makom, instead of a vague statement pointing to an entire book.

The Rebbe quotes the prisha on the Tur lehalcha. It’s parshas beshalach page 64

Eiruvin mean eiruvei chatzeiros etc.

What people commonly call eiruvin these days are really “mechitzos” in the language of poskim.

Eiruvin mean eiruvei chatzeiros and techumin

The sicha in parshas beshalach is about eiruvei techumin which is that parsha. That Perisha is in siman 395, which does NOT discuss mechitzos for hotzaah, rather the other type of eiruvin. I hope this was a just a mistake, and you dont want to mislead anyone.

That sicha in lekkuei sichos vol. 11 beshalach is NOT about mechitzos for hotzaah. The same is in regards to the prisha in siman 395.
