The New/Old Amsterdam Eruv

The thirtieth Conference of European Rabbis (CER) which recently took place in Amsterdam, commemorating sixty years since its establishment, decided to express its appreciation to the city host and the mass transit authority for their assistance in erecting an eruv in the city. The ceremony also commemorated the retirement of the Av Beis Din of Amsterdam, Dayan Arye Ralbag, and the initiation of his successor, Dayan Eliezer Wolf.
