Friday meals


A Jew should ensure that he will appreciate and enjoy his Friday night meal. One step toward this goal is to avoid eating an unusually large meal on Friday, lest it ruin his appetite for the Shabbat meal that evening. Even meals arranged in honor of Mitzvot should be rescheduled away from Friday, where possible.

If such a meal must take place that day, as in the case of a Brit Milah (circumcision), then one should make sure to hold the meal in the morning.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 249:2; Mishnah Berurah 249:13)

Have a great day,
