It's a Thin Line: Eruv from Talmudic to Modern Culture
This volume, edited by Adam Mintz, represents the first collection of essays on the subject of the eruv that combines the halakhic, historical, sociological and artistic aspects of the 2000-year-old rabbinic idea of the eruv. In the past several decades, the eruv has caught the attention of scholars and artists, sociologists and politicians. Historians have begun to study the development of the eruv from the courtyards of Roman Palestine to the urban eruvin of the modern period. It's a Thin Line, complementing the 2012-2013 Yeshiva University Museum exhibition, brings together these multiple perspectives in one beautifully designed volume.
