For political reasons, not halachic. Hillirious, let me go to Reb Moshe for comment.
You gotta see an accurate account of R'Moshe's position first. Also, don't forget that he himself says that he says is a chiddush.

Is there an eruv from county line and ridge to ocean pointe development on route 88 ?

I'm not sure what you're saying. Yes, there are major politics involved.

The Yeshiva is GENERALLY against Eiruvin although they are more outspoken regarding the larger ones. This is more of a policy at this point.
That is really the core of the issue here. I guess they consider themselves smarter than the Wisest of Men and his Beis Din.

Reb Moshe? Wow.
Reb Moshe said you can't halachically make an Eiruv in Boro Park. Full stop.
Don't call Reb Moshe "some opposition" or refer to his psak as "politics"
Thank you.

That's not what he said and that's not what I said.

He was talking about Flatbush, specifically Ocean Parkway. Reb Moshe held that it was considered one road with the highways connecting to it, which he says himself is a chiddush. Most poskim did not agree with that part. In any case, the Vaad HaEiruv says there aren't Shishim Riboi passing through Ocean Parkway anyways.

The politics have nothing to do with Reb Moshe. They are in relation to the current Eiruv being constructed.

That may be Flatbush. Boro Park has another concern. Regardless of what he called it, it is in no way an excuse to brush aside his psak. "Most Poskim" what?
No idea who the Vaad HaEiruv is, but they don't sound too unbiased.

Let's clarify again, according to our greatest American posek, carrying in Boro Park on Shabbos is regular chillul shabbos.

Rabbi Forcheimer Rabbi Felder are BMG two main poskim. their psak is generally accepted more than Aygarts
+100000000000000000000000000000000000000000 although you left some out who are considered on equal standing with them and are in fact more involved with eruvin in general on a regular basis.

I find it amusing that in this context my opinion is being solicited.

@yelped you seem to have your decision made regardless of what the various local poskim feel and are brushing everything aside as politics. This is not the case.

That is really the core of the issue here. I guess they consider themselves smarter than the Wisest of Men and his Beis Din.
This is extremely out of place.

Re Brooklyn, at the time close to ALL major poskim in NYC spoke out against making an eruv in Brooklyn. Take a step back for a second and think over whether maybe YOU are the one being political here.

Thanks for speaking up. I was awaiting your input. I was referring to Borough Park, not Flatbush. As I said the big two poskim that I rely on are R'Fishel Hershkovitz zatzal, and lhavdil bein chaim lchaim, R'Yechezkel Roth.

Regarding the Shlomo Hamelech comment, I was referring to what someone said, it being a matter of policy. That sounds like what the gemara says regarding who is considered an apikores, and to why the Rosh put a Rav into Cherem.

According to R Moshe there should be no difference between Boro Park or Flatbush. The letters from the poskim then were primarily about Boro Park.

Either way, any claim that opposition is only politics is plain wrong and is really politics in itself. It is often also an excuse for someone who wish to do as they please and brush off anyone who feels otherwise. If you feel that you want to go with the aforementioned poskim then go ahead, but it IS against the opinion of other poskim including R AHaron. Don't just brush them aside as politics.

Why do you say that? Ocean parkway is not in Borough Park.

I didn't say that. I was referring to the modern day Borough Park Eiruv when I said there was politics. And there definitely is.

It is not dependent on Ocean Parkway alone. This is very clear in his tshuvos. Brushing off the other opinions regarding Boro Park as politics is no different.

For the last time, I didn't say this. I didn't brush off all other opinions. Some of them are definitely politics. That's it.

In any case, let's just all make sure we're on the same page in principle: Constructing Eiruvin is a big Mitzvah and is one of the primary responsibilities of a community Rav, in order to prevent a Michshol (besides the Kabbalistic significance of this Mitzvah). If one is opposed to the concept of Eiruvin in principle, the gemara says that they are an apikores, and the Rosh placed someone in Cherem because of that (as far as I remember, that Rav claimed that there was an halachic issue with that eiruv, not that he was opposed as a matter of principle, but the Rosh didn't buy that. I may be wrong with this detail of that case, I have to look it up).

These machlokes regarding Eiruvin are regarding the specific halachic circumstances regarding these particular Eiruvin, but there is no opposition to the construction of citywide Eiruvin in general.

Can we agree to that?
