“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” (Exodus 20:7, the 4th commandment)
Welcome the sabbath with the elegance and eloquence of a pair of Shalom House Shabbat candle holders. Whether you choose leaves of gold and bronze, hand crafted to enhance the flicker of the candle flames, or “loving”, delicately interwoven metal and glass holders embracing a heart, our candlesticks let you give your own personal expression to your reverence for the holy day. Originating in Talmudic times, throughout the centuries Jewish women have been lighting Shabbat candles on Fridays at sunset to mark the beginning of the sabbath, a time of rest and family. It is customary to light two candles to remind us of the twin mitzvah’s of “remembering” and “keeping” the sabbath, and some say, to signify the partnership of marriage. We invite you to uphold this age-old and heart warming tradition with candlesticks from our timeless collection.
