Observant Jews in Sydney, Australia, will soon be able to carry items and push strollers on the Sabbath after a local council approved the building of an eruv, or ritual boundary, there. The eruv is slated to be built in an area where 10 of Sydney’s 18 Orthodox synagogues are located and where the beach volleyball competition in September’s Olympics is scheduled to occur.
