The four volunteers that have maintained the Eruv for 15 years are retiring! Wanted: Young people (20's, 30', 40's) to replace these four people to make up the core group that is responsible for keeping the Eruv up through their work, and to reach out to the weekly volunteers that assist. Training will be provided (no pole climbing involved). Must be able to use basic tools, (hammer, nails, screwdrivers, pruner, etc...). Must be able to work at variable times prior to Shabbos:

** Spring and Summer; Thursday during the day or evening, Friday in the morning.

** Late Fall and Winter; Thursday evening or Friday morning.

It is imperative to keep this valuable asset viable in our community. We can't let "someone else" do it. This is our Eruv, we as a community are the ones to take of it.
