The Sabbath Table

Candle Lighting[02]


Lighting Shabbat candles is one of the most universal and longstanding Jewish practices. By participating in this tradition, your family connects with today’s Jewish community worldwide and the generations from long ago. The custom of lighting candles is rich in symbolism and creates an atmosphere of sanctity and beauty. It communicates to us on a deep level that holy time has begun and that the busy and worried weekday world is fading away. The light of the Sabbath candles reminds us of the divine revelation of God through our Master Yeshua the Messiah.
