*Eruv Tavshillin

We must make an Eruv Tavshillin on Hoshan Rabbah, Wednesday afternoon, 10/11. This allows us to make all necessary preparations on Simchat Torah, Friday, 10/13 for Shabbat which follows immediately afterwards. However, unlike a regular Friday afternoon, it is important to make sure that all foods prepared for Shabbat be totally cooked and edible well before Shabbat begins.  

The Eruv consists of a challah or a matzah, and a cooked food, such as meat, fish, or an unpeeled hard-boiled egg. For details of the procedure and the appropriate Brachah that should be made, consult the siddur (Tehillat Hashem page 327) or see   here
