How To Light Shabbos Candles (video)

How To Light Shabbos Candles

A cute instructional, for those of you who might need some help with this..

Anybody know why wave the hands specifically 3 times?


  1. Because it is a Lubavitch video. That is what chabadnikim do - wave the hands three times, so it becomes a holy part of the process.

    Additionally, the accepted Bracha is להדליק נר של שבת - the word קדש is not part of the bracha.

    Additionally, accepted practice in "mainstream" Judaism (whatever that is :-)) one is allowed to blow out the match if the bracha has not yet been said. On erev Yom Tov, the match cannot be blown out because the bracha is said first.

  2. As I have heard said by those bigger than me "Lubavitch is the closest religion to yidishkeit"
