"לְכָה דוֹדִי לִקְרַאת כַּלָּה פְּנֵי שַׁבָּת נְקַבְּלָה"
"Let’s go, my beloved, to meet the bride and let us welcome the presence of Shabbat"
The candle lighting Mitzvah most likely originates in the need to light the household when the sun set, so that the family members could luxuriate in eating the Shabbat meal in candlelight – a luxury indeed in the days before electric lighting, when beeswax and even tallow candles would represent a considerable portion of the household income.
The obligation light candles on Shabbat appears only in the Talmud and Shulchan Aruch added the blessing to be uttered over the lighting of the candle.
However, origins aside, Shabbat candle lighting is a special time in any household, where time seems to hold still. Without, twilight falls, and the weariness of the work week slowly fade away into the peace and comfort of Sabbat. The hour of lighting candles is a special hour in which one can pray and raise wishes on behalf of everyone in the house and the entire Jewish People. Our products are designed to add even more beauty and grace to this special hour between the sacred and the mundane.
