Erev Shabbat Candle Lighting

To view this video, you will need to install the Flash Player and turn Javascript on.

In traditional homes the Shabbat Candles are lit at home by the woman of the house. In liberal synagogues this home ritual was brought into the Erev Shabbat service as a sign of the community welcoming Shabbat with joy, light and warmth. The ritual of Shabbat Candle lighting is very old, going back to Mishnaic times. (circa 200 C.E.)
