Every Friday evening twenty minutes before sunset Shabbat candles are lit in the home. For the Shabbat candle-lighting ceremony we use Shabbat candleholders or candlesticks. We could of course just use a plate or tray but it for Hidur Mitzvah reasons‚ the principle of enhancing a mitzvah through aesthetics‚ we use specially designed candle holders for lighting the Shabbat candles. Candles are lit on Friday night‚ the eve of Shabbat‚ to sanctify the day of rest and to welcome the Sabbath Queen. Most families light two candles on Shabbat eve the first to remind us to remember the Shabbat and the second one to remind us to honor and keep it. In some families the woman of the house lights more than the two obligatory Shabbat candles‚ one for each member of the family or two for each woman and girl. Find a lovely collection of Shabbat Candle Holders that will light up your Fridays and Yamim Tovim. Shabbat candle holders come in many forms from traditional to contemporary and in many different materials: silver‚ metal‚ ceramics‚ glass‚ wood‚ or even stone. With so many designs available it is not easy to decide and choose the perfect Sabbath candlestick you would like to own or give as gift. After you decided on the material of the candle holder there are still so many factors to think of when choosing the candle holders or candlesticks: what kind of candles will be lit- tapered‚ cylindrical‚ or tea lights. Would you like traditional Shabbat candle holders or a modern design' Should there be a subject and story connected to the Shabbat candle holders such as Jerusalem‚ the tree of life‚ or the seven species or a symbolic meaning like the pomegranate candlesticks' We collected a great variety of candleholders made by Israeli artist for you to choose your candleholders including traveling Shabbat candleholders that will be great when traveling for Shabbat. Shabbat shalom!
