Here where I live in the Altrincham Hale Halebarns area of Trafford, I am told that a proposed planning application for a Jewish Eruv a physical religious boundary is imminent.
So I took a trip to see the Manchester Jewish Eruv, and I was astonished to see the size and the scale of these poles that are in places just feet away from peoples homes and properties, standing out like a sore thumb and so much "private" street clutter .
We should be bringing down walls, and fences, not building them.

Just observations
Multi-Cultural area exist. All Faiths
Need to bring down walls and fences, not build them
This is to form a Jewish Enclave
The physical structure will be seen as religious symbols
Who will be responsible for maintenance is permission is granted?
Who will be responsible for the annual public liability cost?
Need to enhance community cohesion
Any part of this in the conversation area?

Obviously someone didn't do his homework. I'm not Jewish and even I know what it stands for cuz I did my homework... It has nothing to do with division. It's just a loophole for their Jewish laws

What a waste of everyone's time. You're moaning about the installation of slightly longer than usual street lamp posts that look no different to the other ones in your video. Do you spend equal amounts of time protesting against the installation of mobile phone masts or other 'street clutter'? Essentially the eruv is a designated area that Jewish people can use to be in on the sabbath without breaking any of the sabbath laws. Whether you agree with that particular theological idea or not, it's not causing anyone the slightest bit of harm. You speak about it as if it's being installed to create separation between people, personally it sounds like that's what you want. I suggest finding some slightly more interesting hobbies to keep you occupied.

A Jewish Eruv- as opposed to all those non-Jewish Eruvs out there.

You seem to misunderstand entirely what an eruv is. It may be under the definition of a "boundary" of sorts but it does the exact opposite of separate people. Its entire purpose is to allow people of a certain religion to practise their beliefs far more comfortably than before. There is no separation. Anyone can go within these "boundaries." Its entire purpose is to allow more freedom to those of certain beliefs. Thats what we should all strive for. People of every background having the freedom to practise as they wish. And no. The poles are barely noticable, i guarantee that 95% of those who do actually notice them just assume they are something as bland reasoning as the next pole.

Here in the UK observing a religion is a right afforded to all, as it should be everywhere. It seems to me that the extension of a private domain, via a cable or eruv is a bit of a loophole and not really observing the religion.

Can someone explain to me (with oranges and apples) how an Eruv works??

can you tie string to lamp posts and use them as eruvs?

An eruv is not to keep non-Jews out. It is so that the Jews can carry things on them during shabbat. This is a total misunderstanding. (Hopefully not a deliberate one!)

Hilarious. I've driven around there many times and never noticed them. Perhaps they should remove all the mobile phone masts too. They stand out a lot more. Get a life.

My husband works delivering cars and he has delivered one there today and has been treated and looked at like he was a piece of shit. He has never felt so rejected or hated before not even in posh communities or the so called rough estates. He said the man that got the car grabbed the keys and told him to get off rudely and that all people (dressed in traditional Jewish clothes) were staring at him with hate and disgust. I’ve never been there but I wonder if that’s a general thing within the perimeter or it’s just a one off thing?

An eruv has nothing to do with creating a conclave or boundaries of any sort, you should read a book before spouting your horseshit

You make an area to bypass your religous obligations just shows how silly religion is. So much for Multi-Culturalism and it looks lousy as well

Mark my words Shannon I know exactly what an Eruv is.
It is a physical religious boundary to form an enclave, I do not care about the religion, I do care and oppose to physical religious markers/symbols , here where we live we have community cohesion, walls and boundaries should be coming down, and not being put up.
