CANDLES AND CANDLE HOLDERS
Lighting the Sabbath candles formally ushers in the Sabbath for the members of the household. The minimum number of candles lit is two representing the two forms of the fourth commandment: “Zachor” Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy (Exodus 20:8) and “Shamor” Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy. (Deuteronomy 5:12). In Jewish homes it is traditional for the woman of the house to light the candles before the sun sets on Friday evening, and to recite a special Prayer: “Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who sanctified us through His commandments and who has commanded us to light the Sabbath candles.”
