When Friday evening approaches and darkness is setting upon the world we enjoy that the work week is coming to an end. At sunset Shabbat is ushered in and we greet the Shabbat with candle lighting.
Every Friday night Shabbat candles are lit by the woman of the household. After lighting‚ she moves her hands over the candles to welcome the Shabbat. She then covers her eyes in order not to see the candles before reciting the blessing‚ and recites the blessing. The hands are then removed from the eyes‚ and she looks at the candles‚ completing the mitzvah of lighting the candles.
Translated the blessing says: Blessed are You‚ our G-d‚ King of the Universe‚ Who Has Commanded us to kindle the Light of Shabbat
In many homes it is a lovely to have the blessing before you while reciting thus many artists created beautifully illustrated Shabbat Candle Lighting Blessing art works.
