Preparations for Shabbat

 

Preparations for Shabbat 

Fridays involve making many preparations in honor of Shabbat, and in order to complete them before candle-lighting time, one must begin them early.  Children should be included in these preparations, so that they will have a part in the mitzvah. When a calm mood prevails in the family, all are happy to participate in the preparations for the honored guest who arrives on Friday when candles are lit, and remains until the following evening. This guest is Shabbat our Queen, the sacred Shabbat. 

These preparations include three aspects: 1) preparing the lighting, 2) preparing the kitchen, 3) preparing the electrical hotplate.

1) preparing the lighting: Before Shabbat we turn on the lights we need during the Shabbat, since on Shabbat we are forbidden to turn on or off any electic tool.


2) Preparing the kitchen: On friday we cook and prepare all the food for shabbat, since on shabbat we are not allowed to cook. 

When Shabbat, "the rest day", appears, everything is ready, and we are invited to by happy in the rest and holiness of the Shabbat day.

3) Preparing the electrical hotplate: On Shabat we are forbidden to turn on or turn off gas, oven, and any electric tool, etc. In order to keep the food warm for Shabbat, we may use "Shabbat Plata".

After the cooking on friday, we trun the oven off, we trun the "Shabbat Plata" on, and we put our cooking pots on the plata before the time of candle lighting.

The Shabbat Urn: It is forbidden to warm water on Shabbat, even by means of an electric urn or a similar appliance.



If one wants warm water on Shabbat for tea, coffee, or other purposes, one may fill a thermos before Shabbat with warm or hot water, or buy a Shabbat urn, in which he boils a certain amount of water on Friday. Before Shabbat he turns on the switch to the Shabbat mode, since on Shabbat it is forbidden to do so.
