Is Eruv Tavshilin a requirement?


When Yom Tov occurs on a Friday, one may not prepare on Yom Tov for the ensuing Shabbos unless he creates an eruv tavshilin, setting aside two foods for use on Shabbos and reciting a text which declares this to be the 'down payment' on his preparations for Shabbos. [Click here for more posts related to eruv tavshilin.]

One who will not need to prepare on Yom Tov for Shabbos is not obligated to create an eruv tavshilin.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:20:26)

Have a great day,
