Women and Gemara
In Memory of Rabbi Moshe Kahn ztz”l 


Please join Ohev Sholom for a special Shavuot celebrating women and gemara, in memory of Rabbi Moshe Kahn ztz”l. We will be joined by Chana Borow and Ilana Gimpelevich, who are both students at Yeshivat Maharat.

Thursday, May 25 (Erev Shavuot)

Eiruv Tavshilin
When Yom Tov begins on a Thursday night and extends into Shabbat , we need to make what is called an “Eiruv Tavshilin.” Because we are not supposed to prepare anything that we need for the future on Yom Tov, we should not be able to prepare for Shabbat on Yom Tov. This can present logistical challenges, so there is an opportunity to make what is known as an Eruv Tavshilin on Thursday so that we can prepare for Shabbat on Friday. The instructions for making an eiruv tavshilin can be found
