Seudah Shlishit vs. Melaveh Malkah


The practice of eating a special meal after Havdalah is a good practice, but it is not obligatory. On the other hand, the practice of eating three meals during Shabbat is actually linked to biblical verses.

Therefore, a person who must choose between the two practices (such as one who would become so full from Seudah Shlishit that he could not eat Melaveh Malkah) should opt to have three meals during Shabbat and skip the meal after Shabbat.

(Mishneh Berurah 300:2)

Have a great day,
