These gorgeous ball shaped Shabbat candlesticks, decorated with two dainty rows of silver pearl-shaped pieces, are a beautiful and integral Judaica component to the Shabbat and Yom Tov celebrations. Standing eight and a half centimeters tall, these candlesticks’ sturdy design and contemporary decorations are a perfect blend of modern art and treasured Jewish traditions.
Every Friday evening, a few minutes before the sun sets, Jewish families all over the world observe the mitzvah of hadlakat nerot, the ritual of lighting the Sabbath / Shabbat / Shabbos candles. This ritual is symbolic of inviting the light and happiness of the Sabbath holiday. Some families light a candle for each member of their immediate family, but a minimum of two candles are used, symbolic of two mitzvot relating to the Shabbat, shamor and zachor - observing (through our actions) and remembering (through our words and thoughts) the holiday.
