Abstract

Eruvim are religious enclaves important to Orthodox Jewish culture. The paper examines the religious and spatial dimensions of eruvim, including the demarcation of their boundaries, which serve as metaphorical walls and doorways. It explicates the local politics through which private space is extended into public space. The topic is situated within broader concerns about diasporic Jewish identity, threatened by assimilationism, slow demographic growth and secularization. It invokes recent theories concerning the spatialization of consciousness and subjectivity
