QUESTION: Why is it custom
ary to eat gefilte fish on Friday
night? (B. 8., Los Angeles, Cal.)
ANSWER: There are a number
of interesting answers to this
question. Apparently the fact
that the “gefilte fish” is prepared
j n round pieces may be a symbol
of the manna which the Jews ate
jn their journey through the
desert and which came in round
pieces. On the Sabbath the round
ness of the “kugel” has the same
.significance. It seems that the
notion of eating fish, in general,

had a very important significance
on the Sabbath.
Some sources speak of the three
creations that were blessed in se
quence as they were created—
fish on the fifth day, man on the
sixth and the Sabbath on the
seventh. A three-fold blessing is
always revered in Jewish life, so,
on the Sabbath, the Jew joins the
fish to his Sabbath and adds him
self for the three-fold blessing.
Another interesting reason ad
vanced is that the custom dates
back from the days when the
Jews were receiving manna. This
manna is said to have had every
possible taste available for the in
dividual except that of fish—and
that is what made the Jews com
plain by saying: “We remember
the fish we ate in Egypt.” Fish
therefoz’e assumed a special taste
of its own and on the Sabbath a
Jew is supposed to have every
possible sort of delicacy—so he
pays special tribute to the fish,
which was the only taste not
available in the manna. Other
authorities point to the fact that
the fish always has its eyes open
and is representative of the
Almighty who “never slumbers
or sleeps” in watching over his
people. Some sources indicate
the fact that the life of the fish
is in water yet he jumps up to
catch the raindrops in his open
mouth. The Jewish people live
by the Torah which is likened to
the waters of the eternal fount
ain. Others point to the fact that
fish was once a rare delicacy and
in Jewish life one always saves
the rarest of delicacies for the
Sabbath.
