Melaveh D'Malka

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX

(Copyright, 1967, JTA, Inc.)

is customary to have a meal
on Saturday night and to give it
the special title of "Melaveh
D'Malka."
The Talmud tells us (Tractate
Shabbos 119) in the name of Rabbi
Hanina that a person should set
his table on Saturday night even
if he will eat only a minimum
amount of food. The reason given
is that by doing this a person will
usher out the Sabbath in grand
style as if he were giving a ban-
quet to bid farewell to the king
who had just visited him. This is
why the meal is called "Melaveh
D'Malka" (i.e. the farewell to the
king). Later commentaries con-
sidered this meal as a good omen
that a man's table will be well
provided for during the week.
Others considered this meal as an
omen that the family will be spar-
ed from painful cures. A group of
commentaries associate this meal
with the life hereafter. Some of
them claim that observance of this
meal will spare one from being
restless in his grave. The logic be-
hind this may be that since he
allows the Sabbath to depart from
hi. home in dignity and orderli-
ness. so will his own departure
from this world and the life in
he hereafter be one of dignity and
calm. Other mystic sources claim
that this meal feeds one of the
organs of the human body which is
that organ from which the resur-
rection of the dead will take place.
They claim that when Adam
tasted the forbidden fruit which
brought death unto this world, one
organ did not derive any benefit
or nourishment from this fruit. It
is this organ that never decom-
poses entirely in the grave, and
therefore serves as the residue of
the human body out of which the

The dedication ceremony, at
which the Tora will be consecrated

Bute recalling the ancient parable
"it is not the man that honors the
place but the place that honors the
man." Dr. Richard C. Hertz, senior
rabbi, called Katz a man, who, "in
every phase of his d u t i . e s, has
brought a conscientious devotion to
the temple's well-being that beg-
gars description. No one deserves
a heartier "happy birthday' than
our belovel, indefatigable execu-
tive secretary."

body will he reformed in the day
of the resurrection of the dead.
This organ, is, so to speak, kept
alive only by the meal which one
consumes with reverence on Sat-
urday night.

REPAIR AND
INSTALLATION

This meal is associated with
King David and sometimes call-
ed "Seudatha D'David Malka."

It is related in the Talmud that
King David took special delight
in his Saturday night meal (Tract
tate Shabbos 30a). This is because
when he asked the Almighty to
tell him the day on which he was
ordained to die, the Almighty only
told him that it would be on the
Sabbath Day (without telling him
on which Sabbath it would be):
Therefore, after completing an-
other Sabbath and finding himself
still alive, he would rejoice with
a special feast, since it was clear
to him that he would have at
least another week of life in this
earth. The observance of the Sat-
urday night meal reflects this epi-
sode as well as it perhaps, serves .
as a means of thanking the Al-
mighty that we ourselves have liv-
ed to enjoy another Sabbath of;
our lives.
