Shabbat Candles Blessings

Shabbat Candles Blessings

The time of lighting the Shabbat candles is magical. Traditionally, this mitzvah (commandment) is the domain of women. After preparing for the day, the whole family stops and welcomes the Shabbat Bride. The candles are lit, and one lifts hands and covers the eyes. Now is the time to recite the blessing over lighting the Shabbat candles. After it is said, one takes their hands away and sees the light anew.

What would be a Shabbat meal without lovely challot under a beautifully decorated cloth? And you can’t cut them on a random board, can you? I’ve prepared a huge (and still growing) collection of challah covers, cutting boards, serving platters in addition to napkins and tablecloths.
