The Monsey eruv surrounding Good Samaritan Hospital in Rockland County has been expanded once again, askanim from The Monsey Eruv organization tell Hamodia.

Expansions in the eruv have been underway for over 10 years, including a development which allowed access to the hospital’s Bikur Cholim House. People who are permitted to travel on Shabbos from the hospital were given the ability to carry their luggage to cars waiting for them; a feature that many hospitals lack.

Previously, people walking to or from the hospital needed to zigzag along a complicated path on and around Route 59 to remain inside the eruv.

There was also no viable path within the eruv to reach Suffern coming from Montebello. The only walkway was interrupted by Hemion Road, which was not covered in the eruv.

After the latest expansion, both issues have been solved. Route 59 is now covered until Woodland Street, and Hemion Road is now included in the eruv as well, merging the Montebello and Suffern eruvin.
