Eruv and Mikvah
The Lido Beach Community is surrounded by a Mehadrin Eruv which allows our families, young and old to carry or push strollers on Shabbos. Whether to Shul, to the popular Clark St Park to play in the afternoon or just for a walk on the beautiful streets the Lido Eruv is maintained at a high standard and encloses the entire area.
The Eruv is under the kashrus of our Mara D'Asra, Rav Eli Biegeleisen. Rabbi Dovid Miller, who trained under the Halachic supervision of Rabbi Isaac Kresh and maintains the Far Rockaway and Long Beach Eruvin, serves as the hands-on consultant.
The Lido Eruv covers the entire area of Lido Beach from Prescot St -the last block of the dunes and includes all the residential areas of Lido until Long Beach. Along Maple Ave. the eruv connects seamlessly to to the Long Beach which extends until the West End, ending on New York Ave. The Canals eruv circles the entire Canals section seamlessly connecting the Lido eruv at the Auxiliary Police pathway and the Long Beach eruv on the other sides.
Note: The Eruv does not include any part of the beach itself, the ramps to the beach or the golf course.
Anchor Park (Lido Town Park) playground (at the end of the dunes), Lido Town Park West and their surrounding parking lots are not in the Eruv.
The Dunes neighborhood, including the road and path along the dunes is in the Eruv.
The School yards and fields are in the Eruv.
[On Lagoon Dr. West the circle at the end of the block beginning from the side of 312 Lagoon drive is not l'chatchila within the eruv (the last 4 houses on the block and sidewalks there)].
The Long Beach Eruv runs contiguous to the Lido Eruv and includes the Boardwalk. The ramps to the beach and beach itself are outside the eruv. -click here for information on the Long Beach Eruv.
