Shabbaton Candle Lighting Announcement



For those ladies who will be joining us for the Shabbaton this Shabbat and will be driving to Shul prior to Shabbat, candles should be lit at home PRIOR to coming, making a condition on themselves NOT to accept Shabbat until after coming to Shul.   Enough oil should be used so that the candles are still burning upon returning home later that evening. This is the prefered method to light.

 Alternatively, if this first method is not an option due to concerns of burning excessive oil, the order to light the candles at home prior to coming to Shul should be as follows:  First, turn on an electric light , then light the Shabbat candles  (with the beracha being made on the lighting of the candles themselves), also making a condition on themselves NOT to accept Shabbat until after coming to Shul.  With this option, one does not need to be concerned with the amount of oil used.

Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach
