Eruvs: For many years, Las Vegas has had only one eruv surrounding Congregation Shaarei Tefilla, the closest shul to the gambling strip. Now Las Vegas has a second eruv – in the Summerlin area – thanks to the efforts of Rabbi Yitzchak Wyne of the Young Israel of Aish HaTorah, Rabbi Yehoshua Fromowitz and Rabbi Yaakov Greenblatt of Memphis.
