There is a new eruv in the South Tottenham area, which covers part of the Jewish community of Stamford Hill in North East London. Most of the area is houses. Among the Halachic guidelines is the following:
- Even within the Eruv boundaries one must not carry into the gardens of non-Yiddishe neighbours, both front and back gardens.
- Those whose gardens are open to non-Yiddishe neighbours either front or back should check with the Vaad what to do.
What might be the explanation for these rules? Is this something which might apply (perhaps as a stringency) to many eruvin, or is this something special to this location?
One possibility I thought of is the sechirat reshut procedure(s) with public authorities were somehow (either unusually in this case, or because of a chumra) not good enough for private residential property. Could that make any sense? If so, could the eruv include a street which has such a garden open on to it?
