The New Orleans Eruv covers the area of Anshe Sfard and of the Chabad of New Orleans.

Please note: Eruv construction relies on many leniencies whose validity is disputed by the Halachic authorities. While we made every effort to make the Eruv in accordance with as many opinions as possible, please check with your personal Halachic authority before using the Eruv. For any questions about specific leniencies relied upon for the Eruv, you may contact Rabbi Rivkin.

The borders of the Eruv are as follows:

Uptown - Orleans Parish Line
Downtown - Felicity St.
River Side - Tchoupitoulas
Lakeside - The 1-10.

Please note: The Eruv map is approximate. If you are on a street near the edge of the Eruv, please check with Rabbi Rivkin for the precise route of the Eruv.
