Product Description

Here is a pretty set of travelling candlesticks. Pomegranate-shaped, they are still attached to the branch. The pomegranate, a popular Jewish motif, represents prosperity, wisdom and fruitfulness. It is also a symbol of righteousness. It is reputed to contain 613 seeds, corresponding to the 613 commandments of the Torah.

Before kindling the Shabbat lights, many have the custom to give charity in order to have an additional merit before turning to G-d in prayer as we cover our eyes and kindle the lights. A novel insight - since on Shabbat we do not handle money, we give extra charity before Shabbat to make up for the charity we can't give on Shabbat.
