Made of brass, these beautiful double Shabbat candlesticks for enjoyment during the annual Jewish festivals and the weekly Shabbat holiday is a daring twist on a classic necessity to Jewish observance. Despite its original variation, this bold, modern Shraga Landesman design pays homage to a more traditional style with the angular, candlestick-shaped cutout featured in the center of the base. Its thin, narrow design allows this Judaica candlestick to store compactly when not needed during the rest of the week.
Often anglicized as the Sabbath and gratefully known to all who observe it as the Day of Rest, Shabbat begins on Friday night and continues until the eve of Saturday, as Jewish holidays begin on the previous evening. To mark the start of Shabbat, it is customary to light a pair of candles that will stay lit for most of the night, symbolic of the holiday’s joyous atmosphere.
