Eruv Tavshilin: Please remember to make an Eruv Tavshilin on Thursday, April 25th in advance of Yom Tov and Shabbat! This includes taking one baked and one cooked food item (e.g., Matzah and a cooked egg) and setting them aside for your Shabbat meal this week. Lift them up and recite the blessing, “Baruch Ata Adonai Eloheinu Melech ha’olam asher kidshanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu al mitzvat eruv.” This allows you to cook Friday, April 26th for the Shabbat meals.
