Standing twenty centimeters tall, these fine crystal Judaica candlesticks are elegant, distinct, and majestic. Designed specially for use on Shabbos (the Jewish Sabbath) and Yomim Tovim (annual Jewish festivals), these candlesticks are artful in style. Resting on sturdy and textured bases, the stems of these candlesticks contain tiny flecks of silver metal, adding a subtle touch of whimsy to a serene design.
The Jewish year is filled with holidays and celebrations. Most of them are ushered in at nightfall, with the ritual of candle-lighting among observant households. Candle-lighting is a special mitzvah (commandment from G-d) that, in most cases, the lady of the house takes on. (In her absence, a man may light the candles.) When the candles are lit, a blessing is recited, acknowledging the Holy One’s command, and the holiness of the holiday we are about to receive.
