HOW
THE SAGES
PREPARED
FOR
SHABBAT

R. Abba bought meat for thirteen istira peshita (a lot of money) from thirteen butchers and handed it over to them [his servants] as soon as the door was opened and urged them, 'Make haste, Quick, Make haste, Quick!'

R. Abbabu used to sit on an ivory stool and fan the fire.

R. 'Anan used to wear an apron (to help prepare the food for Shabbat); for the School of R. Ishmael taught: The clothes in which one cooks a dish for his master, let him not pour out a cup [of wine] for his master in them.

R. Safra would singe the head [of an animal].

Raba salted shibuta (believed to be a kind of fish).

R. Huna lit the lamp.

R. Papa plaited the wicks.

R. Hisda cut up the beet roots.

Rabbah and R. Joseph chopped wood.

R. Zera kindled the fire.

R. Nachman b. Isaac carried (food and goods for Shabbat) in and out, saying,'If R. Ammi and R. Assi visited me, would I not carry for them?'

Others state: R. Ammi and R. Assi carried in and out, saying, 'If R. Yochanan visited us, would we not carry before him?'

Talmud Tractate Shabbat 119a
