Some Laws, Customs and Guidelines for the Saturday Night Meal
When Shabbat leaves it is proper to accompany it, just as one accompanies royalty when they leave the city. Therefore, on Saturday night one should arrange a special meal, called "Melaveh Malka" ("accompanying the queen"). The special additional soul power merited by every Jew who observes Shabbat lingers until after Melaveh Malka.
