    No cooking yet make a Brochah on eruv?

    No cooking yet make a Brochah on eruv?

    You sure that someone who won’t be cooking still makes a bracha on the eruv??? (The ikar takana was for cooking/baking, not for candle lighting and therefore I think that a brocha on eruv wouldn’t be made).

    There are two opinions whether or not an E.T. is required just for candle lighting. The S.A. HaRav says we should be machmir. Indeed, yidden are makpid to make sure they actually cook on yom tov for the shabbos to insure that the E.T. was used and not a bracha l’vatalah. (This hakpada would not be needed if tthe E.T.’s bracha applie to candle lighting!). As such, girls who are not cooking / baking (as they are eating by other people’s homes) but are only lighting candles, should make E.T. WITHOUT a bracha! That is what I always do!!!

    Take a whole Matza, and a kezayis of a cooked item, like fish or meat. Hand this to someone (older than Bar Mitzva) who is NOT a member of the household, and do the procedure and say the Nusach that is written in the Siddur. Put the Eiruv aside until Shabbos (Acharon Shel Pesach) when it should be eaten (see below). Reminder: The Eiruv Tavshilin is not only for cooking from Yom Tov to Shabbos, but also for lighting candles on Friday evening. Therefore, those who will not be eating at home on Shabbos, should light where they will be… Read more »

    Where do I buy an Eruv Tavshilin Kit?

    I asked in the local supermarket and they didn’t know what I was talking about. Do Judaica Stores sell it?

    There are two opinions if a bracha is made on an Eruv Tavshilim that is ONLY used for lighting candles (because no cooking or baking will be done on Yom Tov for Shabbos): Rabbi Braun says you DO make a bracha on such an eruv. Rabbi Gorelik says that on such an eruv you do NOT make a bracha. When there is a machlokes if one should or shouldn’t make a bracha, the din is Sofek Broches L’hokel (not HAKEL – gather, but HOKEL – lenient) and as such, NO BRACHA is made on such an eruv. Psak Halacha of… Read more »

    Since the last day we eat matza balls, can I use a matza ball for both tavshilin – it has baked matza and cooked eggs, so it covers both, or, maybe the cooking is mevatel the baking of the matza and I still need a baked item?

    Also, can I use a shehakel baked item – like a pesach cookie, or does it need to be a hamotzie?

    Rav Gorelik said no brocha just like the Kaf Hachayim. Rav Braun said to make a bracha just like the Moadim U’zmanim. The Netei Gavriel also says like Rav Gorelik. The Piskei Tshuvos also says like Rav Braun. So what do we do? I already paskened above #7: Sofek Broches L’hokel (not HAKEL – gather, but HOKEL – lenient) and as such, NO BRACHA is made on such an eruv. BTW – I also hold that ALL women today have a din of Isha CHashuva and must do hesaiba. This began since Cherem Rabbei Gershom (of only having one wife… Read more »
