Cooking on a Holiday: Parsha Beshalach

The Torah portion of Beshalach hints to the idea that one may not cook food on a Jewish holiday that will be eaten on Shabbat unless one first makes an "eruv tavshilin." What is an eruv tavshilin and how does it connect to the idea of Jewish love and unity?

supposed to be one succah or many? in the story, the group of houses shared one succah. I am just asking is that correct? I thought it was a mitzvah for each Jew to build his own succah. I am especially asking also because you are saying that ultimately, with Moshiach, Hashem will enwrap us all in one big succah - so the idea of this unity seems to lend itself to one succah not many individual succot.
