The Lighting of the Sabbath Candles
Come, Let us welcome the Sabbath.
May its radiance illumine our hearts as we kindle these tapers.
Light is the symbol of the divine. The Lord is my light and my salvation.
Light is the symbol of the divine in man. The spirit of man is the light of the Lord.
Light is the symbol of divine law. The commandment is a lamp and the law is a light.
I, the Lord, have set thee for a covenant of the people for a light unto the nations.
Therefore, in the spirit of our ancient tradition do we now kindle the Sabbath lights.
