Kiddusha Rabba[09]

The Sabbath Table

Something bothered the sages of Israel when they read Exodus 20:8. The verse does not simply say “Remember the Sabbath,” indicating the need to set apart the Sabbath at its outset on Friday evening, but it says, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Certainly if the night of the Sabbath is to be sanctified, then how much more so the daytime! Thus, they instituted a custom of brief Kiddush blessing along with the daytime Sabbath meal called Kiddusha Rabba: “the great sanctification.”
