Halocho #125 - Melave Malka

It's a Mitzva to eat a meal after Shabbat. This meal is called Melave Malka - accompanying the [Shabbat] queen [on her way out] - essentially a farewell party for Shabbat. If possible one should wash and eat bread and a warm cooked food for Melave Malka. At the very least one should set the table nicely and eat cake or fruit. On Sunday morning the fast of 17 Tammuz begins at day-break; about 90 minutes before sunrise. Check your Luach [Jewish calendar] for local times. If one awakens before day-break one cannot eat anymore unless one intended to do so before going to sleep.
