The Torah prohibits carrying or moving objects on Shabbat and Yom Kippur outside of an enclosed, private area that lacks a clearly defined and essentially continuous boundary. 
Rabbinic understanding of this prohibition encourages communities to create such boundaries, Eruvim, whenever possible, so that the joy of Shabbat will be increased for those who observe traditional Jewish law. 

The Eruv enables families to bring young children to the synagogue so that they may worship as a family. It allows families and individuals to visit and share the day with one another and promotes study by allowing books to be carried from one place to another.
