Illuminate the world
Fire touches wick.
Flame reaches upward.
Another home is bathed in peace
and holiness, in warmth and unity.
A Jewish woman has invited the Sabbath Queen into her home. The darkness of the day's problems recedes, exiled by the peaceful glow of the Shabbos candles. It is truly a gift from heaven. All that is good, all that is holy is symbolized - indeed realized - in the flickering light of the Sabbath candles.
Two millennia ago, the Holy Zohar declared that a woman kindling her Sabbath candles with joy in her heart brings peace on earth, long life to her loved ones, and is blessed with children who illuminate our world with Torah.
Lighting Shabbos candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday night strengthens one's faith and inspires a heightened awareness of the G-dliness that permeates our world and makes all good things possible.

things. But, most important of all, use our resources
a class, workshop or synagogue in your neighborhood to guide, support and befriend you in your exciting search for truth.
