|Mossaei Shabbat||69||78||אגיל ואשמח||According to traditon, Eliyahu will be the one to announce the Messiah, and it has been promised to Israel that the announcement won't come on a Friday night/Shabbat. Therefore, it is a custom to start and ask/wait for the Messiah starting Saturday night from the moment that Shabbat is over. A Z Idelsohn notes, 1923||
