Belmont Synagogue has successfully completed the expansion of its eruv this week.

The increased boundary, which allows observant Jews to push or carry certain items outside their homes on Shabbat, will apply to hundreds more flats and houses.

The extension, completed under the auspices of the KLBD last weekend, stretches from beyond Canons Park Station to before the traffic lights at the end of Witchurch Lane, and includes all entrances of the park itself.

Welcoming the news, Anthony Broza, Belmont Eruv Chair said: “It is a real pleasure to see the completion of this Eruv project as it opens up greater inclusivity and accessibility to one and all for Shabbat observance.”
