Don’t Forget to Make an Eiruv Tavshilin

This eruv consists of a matzah and something cooked

An Eruv Tavshilin is a halachic device which allows one to cook food on Yom Tov for use on the Shabbos that immediately follows.

To allow one to cook on Yom Tov for use on Shabbos, one must prepare an eruv tavshilin which serves as a reminder that the cooking done on Yom Tov is for Shabbos only.

This eruv consists of a matzah and something cooked, for example, a boiled egg or a piece of fish, and is prepared before the onset of Yom Tov.

It symbolically serves as the beginning of the preparation of food for Shabbos. Thus, any subsequent cooking done on the Festival is considered to be a continuation of the preparation begun before the Yom Tov.

Outside of Eretz Yisroel, if the first two days of Pesach fall on a Thursday and Friday, one must prepare an eruv tavshilin on the afternoon before Passover so that one can cook on the Yom Tov for Shabbos, the first of the intermediate days.

This year, in Eretz Yisroel as well as in the diaspora, Shvi’i shel Pesach falls out on Friday .

Thus, in Eretz Yisroel as well, an eruv tavshilin is prepared today.
