  • Position of Tzemach Tzedek on Eruv in Brooklyn Clarified in New Booklet

    A new booklet just released by Rabbi Shmuel Zajac, Maggid Shiur in Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim – Morristown, as well as author of several works on Halacha, strives to bring clarity to the complex Halachic topic of eruvin, focusing on the opinion of the Tzemach Tzedek on the feasibility of city eruvin • Full Story, Download

    A new Kuntres, titled Laleches Bidrachav Betikun Eiruvin published by Rabbi Shmuel Zajac, a well-known Maggid Shiur at Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim of Morristown, NJ, explains the complex topic of eruvin according to the opinion of the Tzemach Tzedek.

    In addition to his role as a Maggid Shiur, Rabbi Zajac is also a prolific writer. He has authored two authoritative seforim on the Halachic opinions of the Alter Rebbe, and has published many Torah articles in various venues.

    In this new Kuntres, the author illuminates the Tzemach Tzedek’s opinion on the building of a city eruv. The Tzemach Tzedek addresses this subject in multiple places, and this is the first time a Kuntres has analyzed all of the Tzemach Tzedek’s writings on this topic in a systematic and thorough way.

    Rabbi Zajac explains why the Tzemach Tzedek did not allow for the construction of an eruv in the city of Lubavitch. Furthermore, Rabbi Zajac explains that if the Tzemach Tzedek was stringent and did not allow an eruv in the city of Lubavitch, he would definitely maintain that it is impossible to construct an eruv in a large city whith a population of over 600,000. Rabbi Zajac concludes that the Tzemach Tzedek would rule that Brooklyn is a reshus horabim (public domain) and it would therefore be forbidden to construct an eruv there.

    The Kuntres impresses on the reader that the Tzemach Tzedek’s position on the issue is based on that of his grandfather, the Alter Rebbe’s, as expressed in his Shulchan Aruch.

    The purpose of this Kuntres is not to cast aspersions on other frum communities, who follow the directive of their own expert poskim on this subject. Rather, the Kuntres aims to clarify the view of the Tzemach Tzedek, so that Chabad Chassidim who follow his rulings halacha lemaaseh, and others who cherish his works, will be able to better understand his rulings on this complex matter.
