A Guide to Buying Shabbat Candlesticks

Lighting Shabbat candlesticks have been a part of Judaism since its very beginning. It has always been a mitzvah that must be done by women. Every Friday evening, as the sun begins to set, Jewish families all over the globe find themselves around a dinner table prepared to start their Shabbat celebrations. Several amazing smells are floating around the room, including those of fluffy challah, perfectly cooked chicken, and kosher wine. Before the feast starts, the women of the family get together and light their Shabbat candlesticks, allowing the Day of Rest to commence. Besides Shabbat, women also light these candles during high Jewish holidays.

Many young women begin lighting their own Shabbat candles after they have had their Bat Mitzvah, yet some women only start to do so once they are married. There are many variations of Shabbat candlesticks to allow every woman to have ones that fit her personality. The numerous types of Shabbat candlesticks make it easy to give them as Bat Mitzvah or wedding gifts for every woman you know.
