Shabbat is a day of light; a day with a different pattern and value orientation from our ordinary weekdays. Every Shabbat is a foretaste of the era of Mashiach. The lighting of the Shabbat candles 18 minutes before sunset ushers in and inspires this state of awareness. The responsibility for lighting the candles and inducing this change of perspective is the woman’s. It is she who welcomes the Shabbat Queen into the home. Young girls from the age of three are also encouraged to light their own candle so that they too can have a share in creating this environment.
