The meal of the angels


"Why did Avraham provide the visiting angels a meal of meat, rather than fish?

"Because he wished to be energetic in performing mitzvot for them. Preparing meat involves many mitzvot, such as shechitah, salting the meat and removing prohibited parts, but no such mitzvot are involved in preparing fish."

(R' Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev, Kedushat Levi to Parshat Vayyera)

Have a great day,
