On behalf of the Nassau County Jewish Advisory Council, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today issued a Proclamation to Rabbi Avraham Portnoy of the Jewish Heritage Center of Queens and Long Island, recognizing an Eruv District - a neighborhood virtual enclosure - in the East Meadow community. The district allows people in the East Meadow Jewish community to travel and work on the Sabbath and other high holy days when any type of activity outside the home isn’t typically allowed.
“I am proud to present this proclamation to the Jewish Heritage Center, and congratulate them on their successful efforts in establishing an Eruv in East Meadow,” said County Executive Mangano. “This is truly a milestone for the East Meadow Jewish Center community and the Jewish community throughout Nassau County.”
