The Sabbath Table

Melaveh Malkah[12]


In Jewish thought, the Sabbath is like an honored royal guest that comes to visit us each week. When the Sabbath leaves, it would be inappropriate to dive eagerly into our weekday cares. On Saturday night after the Sabbath is over we give it a proper farewell party called Melaveh Malkah, which means “escorting the queen.” This practice is laden with magnificent messianic symbolism. Acts 20 indicates that something similar to Melaveh Malkah may have been practiced by the Apostles and the earliest Messianic Jewish community.
