More To-Do
Visiting cemeteries, reciting Psalms, going to a mikvah, purchasing a knife -- some of the other customs associated with the day before Rosh Hashanah.
Eruv Tavshilin
When a holiday runs directly into Shabbat, an eruv tavshilin is set aside before the holiday. This allows us to prepare on the holiday for the Shabbat that follows.
