Melaveh Malkah


One should arrange his table nicely and eat a meal after Shabbat is over, to escort out the Shabbat. This meal is commonly called "Melaveh Malka מלוה מלכא" or "Melaveh Malkah מלוה מלכה."

[The difference between the two names is that the former ends in an Alef, indicating escorting a king, while the latter ends in a Hei, indicating escorting a queen.]

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 300:1)

Have a great day,
