eggThe Eruv Tavshilin is a ritual which essentially proclaims that we have begun Shabbat preparations in advance of the preceding YomTov.  We take two foods that we will eat on Shabbat, and designate before Yom Tov that these foods have already been prepared in advance of Yom Tov, allowing us to "finish" preparing for Shabbat on the holiday.

The two foods should include one baked item (usually bread or matzah), and one cooked item (usually an egg, but cooked chicken or meat would also qualify);


On Shabbat HaGadol (The Shabbat before Pesach) three long black winter coats got mixed up.  Three men took home a wrong coat.  Please check yours.  If you discover that your coat isn't yours, or even if you are not precisely sure, please contact Rabbi Yaffe to arrange an exchange.
