Sponsoring the Seudah Shelishit
SEUDAH SHELISHIT is the third Shabbat meal that is served each week approximately 90 minutes before Shabbat concludes. This light meal consists of salads, kugels, soft drinks, tea, coffee, and pastries. Other menu choices may be available as well.
When a family sponsors this meal in memory of a beloved relative, this information is included in our weekly Shabbat handout and monthly Beth Tfiloh Bulletin, and is announced on Shabbat afternoon at the conclusion of the Mincha (afternoon) service. In addition, during this meal one of our rabbis will make a few remarks about the sponsoring family, or a family member may speak if they desire.
In this way, we honor our departed loved ones and keep their memories alive.
