Leftover Shabbos Food

Many view leftover Shabbos food as undesirable and distasteful. How do the righteous look at it?


R’ Tzvi Elimelech of Dinov (1783-1841), also known as the Bnei Yissaschar, relates an interesting anecdote of a great Tzadik whom he was a gabbai of, the Tzadik of Pshevorsk. This Tzadik would leave over some of his Shabbos food for the weekday. When an honorable guest came during the week, he served him some of this leftover Shabbos food. He would call it a semblance of the shyarei menachos, leftovers from the Mincha offering.[1]

A Jew once came to the Munkatcher Rebbe pouring his heart out because his son-in-law was very sick and the doctors despaired. The Rebbe told him that it is known from tzadikim the great segula of Shabbos food. “I advise that the sick person should eat from Shabbos leftovers.” The sick person took this upon himself and was adamant about eating Shabbos leftovers all week and indeed he continued to live for a long time after this sickness nearly took his life.

[1] Bnei Yissaschar, Tamuz and Av, 1:10 s.v. v’od omeir. The Bnei Yissaschar relates elsewhere (Maamarei Hashabbasos, 1:12) that he saw people who were careful from giving Shabbos food to an eino-yehudi.
