The Meals of the Sabbath
At the dinner table, families and friends gather for festive meals to celebrate the God-given gift of the Sabbath. Three traditional meals throughout the day (and one more the following night) help to infuse the day with delight, joy, and honor. The meals of the Sabbath serve a higher purpose than merely passing the time or satisfying our stomachs; they are opportunities to celebrate the goodness of God and to delight in his commandments. Make your Sabbath meals special, and join the chorus of the generations by lifting your voice in prayer, blessings, songs, and words of Torah.
