Since late 2010, the BES community has had an eruv, which is a way of identifying an area within which certain activities may be performed by Jews on Shabbat.

The eruv allows members of the community with poor mobility, such as mothers with babies, people with disabilities and the elderly, to attend shul services, and visit friends and family on Shabbat. As the community grows and thrives, it encompasses an ever-broadening diversity of people who want to be involved in Shabbat activities and prayer. The eruv provides them with the opportunity to do so, and therefore benefits the whole community.
