Personal preparation for Shabbat


One should always try to find ways to personally prepare the home for Shabbat, rather than leave it to others. One should certainly not say that it is 'beneath his dignity' - the Talmud cites specific examples of the work performed by the sages of that era in the house (sweeping, chopping wood, mincing vegetables and more), demonstrating that the act of honoring Shabbat should be considered a source of dignity for one's self.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 250:1)

Have a great day,
