To symbolize the joy which the festival brings into the Jewish home, the mistress kindles the lights and recites the following blessing:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָֽעוֹלָֽם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּֽנוּ לְהַדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל-(שַׁבָּת וְשֶׁל)-יוֹם טוֹב.

Praised art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who hast sanctified us by Thy commandments, and hast commanded us to kindle the (on Sabbath add: Sabbath and) festival lights.
Praised art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who hast kept us alive and sustained us and brought us to this season.
May our home be consecrated, O God, by the light of Thy countenance, shining upon us in blessing, and bringing us peace!
