Those that are looking for a perfect mixture of traditional and modern looks will love these Golan series Shabbat candlesticks.

Rounded features combine with flat, and a sturdy base anchors the pair.
Shabbat candles are required Judaica items that are used every week on Friday evenings to bring in the Shabbat for the weekend. Just before sundown, the woman of the house lights the candles, and follows that be waving her hand over the candles, covering her eyes, and reciting a Sabbath blessing. The two main candles used with these candlesticks are representative of the husband and wife of the home, while smaller candles are used to represent any children in the home. If there is no woman available, a man may take up the candle lighting.
