*Eiruv Tavshillin (Thursday, April 21)

This allows us to make all necessary preparations on Friday, the seventh day of Pesach, April 22, for Shabbat (the eighth 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.
