An occurrence every Friday evening, Shabbat candlesticks are lit in order to officially bring in the Sabbath. This is a rabbinical law that is done to bring peace into the household, while also honoring the Sabbath. The candles are lit by the woman of the home each Friday evening right before the sun sets. After she is done lighting, a special blessing is said, while the woman has her eyes covered. While this duty is intended for the woman, a man may take her place if she is not present at the time.
