Eating the Eruv Tavshilin


Do you actually have to eat the erev tavshilin?



  1. Eating the Eruv Tavshilin is a recommended thing to do but it is not an obligation. The Mishnah Berurah writes that it is best to eat it at Shalosh Seudas on Shabbos afternoon. I heard many years ago that the reason that it is correct to eat the Eruv Tavshilin is because it is auspicious to use the food that was instrumental in making the Mitzvah, in order to perform yet another Mitzvah.
