*Eruv Tavshillin

We must make an Eruv Tavshillin on Thursday afternoon, 4/5, Erev Shvi'i Shel Pesach (the eve of the 7th day of Pesach). This allows us to make all necessary preparations on Friday, Shvi'i Shel Pesach, 4/6, for Shabbat  (Acharon Shel Pesach, the last day of Pesach) 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 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
