Happy are those of steadfast faith

Who still can bless the light of candles

Shining in the darkness…

Rejoice, O Earth, in those who keep the way,

For there is still song for them within you.

Candles are lit


ברוך אתה, יי, אלהינו, מלח העולם, אשר קדשנו במצותיו, וצונו להדליק נר של (שבת ושל) יום טוב
