Editor's Note
: A correction from Meira Davis: I apologize for an inaccuracy in my interview about the Rav (whichappeared in the most recent Pesach To Go) regarding the Rav's objection to the Boston Eruv. I stand corrected by Dr. Jesse Hefter, who was personally responsible for the design, development, and construction of the Boston Eruv and stillmanages it to this day with great dedication. Dr. Hefter notes: “Our project to build the Boston Eruv began in the fall of 1984. I initially met with the Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Horowitz zt”l, and we discussed whether the Rav’sposition on eruv would in any way hinder this project. Rabbi Horowitz explained to me that he had met with the Rav and discussed this topic and that the Rav’s position was that as long as the eruv was constructed according to properhalachic standards, he was in no way against erecting an eruv in Boston (I recently reconfirmed this position withRabbi Naftali Horowitz shlita, the current Bostoner Rebbe). Further, Rabbi Morris Funk a”h, a close friend of the Rav,spent years of summers at Onset (the Rav’s summer home) and told me personally that the Rav was asked duringShabbos afternoon Q&A sessions about the possibility of an eruv in Boston. Rabbi Funk told me that the Rav,consistently and emphatically, explained to the group that he had no issues with the construction of an Eruv in Boston.On Shabbat VaYechi in January of 1993, our Boston (Brookline/Brighton/Newton) Eruv was completed (after aneight-year effort) and the community was able to use it for the very first time. The Rav was niftar three months laterduring Chol HaMoed Pesach, in April of 1993.”
