Big melava malka and small Shalosh Seudos


Good afternoon Rabbi. As the days get shorter and Shabbat ends earlier, is it acceptable for melaveh malka to be larger than the third Shabbat meal? For example, if the the third meal is more of a snack (ideally with bread) and then a larger dinner after sundown? It would fit better with my schedule and preferences but I did not know if there was a reason against it. thank you.



Thank you for your question.

It is permitted to eat a small third meal, especially in the winter when the days are short and you don’t have much appetite. Later on, if you want to eat a larger meal that is fine.

Best wishes
