Question
I was wondering if there is an Eruv around all of Israel or if there is even a need for an Eruv in Israel?
Answer
Even in Israel one can't carry on Shabbat without an Eruv. An Eruv can't surround fields or big water trenches, for instance, therefore every city or town in Israel has its own Eruv.
