Shabbat candlelighting

Shabbat Siddur

2023.03.11 02:45 FreedomNinja1776 Shabbat Siddur

Today is Shabbat friends! Shalom shalom!
I thought I'd share what my family does to celebrate Erev Shabbat, the beginning of Shabbat.
We just finished lighting candles to welcome in the Shabbat. Why do we light candles on Shabbat? For us it is symbolic of Light from the Most High YHWH. We are commanded to be a light to the nations, and we know the light originates from YHWH (Isaiah 42, 49, & 60, Genesis 1, Revelation 21, John 1 & 8, Matthew 5, Psalm119).

Messianic Shabbat Candlelighting Prayer

So, how do we do this practice? We turn off all other sources of light. My wife lights two candles which will be the only source of light during our collective prayers. We sing our prayers in Hebrew.
Blessed are you YHWH Elohenu, king of the universe who had sanctified is in Your Word, and given us Yeshua our Messiah, and commanded us to be a light to the world. Amen.
Baruch atah Yahweh Elohenu Melec haolam asher keedshanoo beedvarecha v'natahn lanoo et Yeshua m'shechaynoo, v'tzeevanoo l'heoat oar laohlahm. Ahmein.
After the candlelighting we pray the Hamotzi and Hagafen.


The hamotzi thanks YHWH for providing our bread. "Bread" can be a colloquial term for any food that gives us sustenance. We know that Yeshua is the bread of life, the manna that sustains our spirit. His body was broken in the offering of his life for our transgressions. It's with this knowledge we break/ tear and share a piece of bread, usually challah, and pray the following:
Blessed are you YHWH Elohenu, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.
Baruch atah YHWH Elohenu, Melec haolam, Hamotzi lechehm min ha'eretz.
After the Hamotzi, we pray the Hagafen.


The Hagafen thanks YHWH for providing the fruit of the vine. There is lots of symbolism here. First and foremost is the juice, the blood of the fruit, symbolizing the blood of our Messiah Yeshua. His blood was shed to purchase our debt of sin. Our account has been paid in full by his spotless offering. Messiah is the vine (John 15). Or hope is to always remain fruitful and hold strong to the vine that supports is, so the vinedresser will not cut our branch off to be tossed in the fire. It is with this knowledge that we pour a small glass of grape juice or wine coming from crushed fruit and pray the following:
Blessed are you YHWH Elohenu, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
Baruch atah YHWH Elohenu, Melec haolam, borei pri hagafen.
Then we sing a few songs, and that is how we usher in the Shabbat. The following Shabbat day we join with other Sabbath keepers in fellowship at a local congregation. I hope this has blessed you.

2023.02.06 13:07 namyenruojoprole How to Learn Hebrew

Hi all, I'm sure this is asked ten thousand times per minute here, but I figured it was worth a shot.
I am (shocker) Jewish, but I didn't go to Hebrew school growing up, and while I can get through Shalom Aleichem, anything more advanced than basic Shabbat prayers/songs (either rote memorized or read in transliteration) are above my skill level. At bare minimum, I'd like to get to the point where I can feel confident pronouncing actual Hebrew text with niqudot. I'm not planning to move to Israel or anything (and I don't know any native Hebrew speakers in real life), so my desire for truly conversational Hebrew skills is not super high, but getting comfortable with the Jewish texts that are already in my life would be very cool (and after that, we'll see where it goes).
The main problem is that I'm currently in college, work almost full time, and have a dozen other commitments that make it hard to spend a lot of time learning a new language. I could probably carve out 30min a day to practice, but I don't have large blocks of time to devote. I'd be willing to pay for a subscription service kinda thing if it was reasonably affordable and effective, but an actual book (preferably one intended for adults) would be my preferred method. I live in a smaller town with exactly one synagogue and a college with about a dozen Jews (generously) who show up for Shabbat candlelighting every week. Besides rabbis, I don't personally know any Hebrew speakers (or other people trying to learn), so conversation practice would likely be pretty difficult.
Has anyone found success in a similar situation? Are there any particular pitfalls? What's the best approach you've found?

2022.07.22 17:04 Vic_Hedges Trying to identify a religious movement.

Any help would be appreciated. A family member of mine has recently begin practicing a religion that they are being rather... circumspect about describing to us. Not necessarily a strange thing in and of itself, we're a close family but have very different political outlooks, and so have adopted kind of a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in order to keep from offending each other.
Anyways, she is definitely still Christian as she talks about Jesus in a very evangelical way, but also is strictly following some interpretation of Jewish law. She strictly observes Shabbat, prays by candlelight fridays and saturdays, and her partner has taken to wearing a yarmulke and tallit.
This may or may not be tied to a "prepper" community. Anti-vax, society is about to collapse, bible prophecy coming true kind of thing, but I can't be certain whether this is tied to the religion, or just happens to coincide with it. The sect is located in North America.
I respect her as an adult to make her own religious choices, and want to respect her beliefs whatever they are, but it's clear they are well out of my comfort zone. The prepper stuff is a little concerning and I just want to be sure she's safe. If this is some kind of cult I should be worried about, I'd like to know.
Anyone who has any ideas about what this might be, I would appreciate any info.

2020.11.09 21:47 AlexInFlorida Homekit/Homebridge/HOOBS: Jewish Holiday Virtual Sensor Pack for Automation

If you are into Shomer Shabbat home automation, I built a free Homebridge Plugin to know when it Shabbat, Yom Tov, Sukkot, etc. It's highly configurable, supports Israel/Diaspora settings, and uses your Longitude and Latitude for timing. You configure your Candlelighting and Havdalah offset.
Homebridge Jewish Calendar
If you use Apple's HomeKit, and have a Homebridge or HOOBS setup, you simply install it. It has support for the graphical UI configuration.
It creates a "Tile" with 14 "Contact Sensors" that you can build your Automation Logic around. Things that I use it for:
Motion Sensor Rules - Trigger on the motion, but only when Kodesh (Shabbat OR Yom Tov) is off, so those rules turn off.
Dining Room/Patio Settings - Turn on before lunch, and Off after lunch, things related to Shabbat/Yom Tov entertaining. My rule fires when it is Shabbat/Yom Tov but NOT Sukkot. When it is Sukkot AND Shabbat/Yom Tov, the Sukkah turns on/off at that time.
I even included some obscure things... if you want your music to turn on, but only when it's not the Three Weeks or the Omer, you can use those sensors. If you wanted an outlet for a Menorah to turn on/off during Chanukah only, you can do that as well (I thought that might be helpful for a dorm/business that is automating Christamas lights). My family eats in the Sukkah on Shemini Atzeret, to I turn on sheminiatzeret_in_sukkot, but it defaults to off.
All holidays are listed in Modern Hebrew Transliterations, but are settable in the config file, so you can switch them to Ashkenazi, or proper Hebrew just by entering it in the config file.
I'd love feedback. It uses He-Date and Sun-Calc, is 100% open source, and posted in Github.
I wrote it for myself, I spend an extra couple of hours making it configurable, and I hope it is useful to others.

2020.07.14 05:45 Keywhole We know who we are, we know how to love, and much of this is an environmental program

Like water carrying resonance waves, or particles vibrating in the atmosphere, harmonic structures in the field project, retain, and attenuate self-reference patterns. In syncopation with other processes, this creates a self, the culture, notions of time, models of behavior, and so on.
The self-reflecting, bodymind "I"-ness of being is self-informed according to the signals that proliferate in its vicinity. Realizing this is the organizational principle and driving force of media creation and consumption: we realize, to some extent, that we're meta-programming ourselves. Hence the importance of signal curation, media-fasting, unplugging, identifying "positive" and "negative" influences, becoming an uploader instead of merely a consumer, content saturation (thousands of channels in radio, television, and web streams), the dopaminergic addiction to novelty, and the intuition that the noosphere is already a cognizant, pre-singularity AI matrix (with which non-local intelligences interface with humanity using the triad of liquid crystals, electricity, and light waves).
The choice to not have an input nexus creates social isolation. The digital simulacra has become a surrogate for community. When, if ever, do small groups of people cohere around candlelight and eat together and it not be followed by television afterwards? (maybe save for Shabbat if you're Israeli).
On the bright side, constant connectivity with interlinked circuitry is embraced as evidence for our transcendent capabilities, a celebration of knowledge, music, art, language, and a delivery vessel for our most beautiful creations (of sounds, lights, symbols).
A bit of meandering digression -- as to the culmination of these considerations:
If there was a vast intentional conspiracy whereby your friends, family, and colleagues personally treated you as gifted, extremely intelligent, talented on multiple levels, radiant in your beauty, and compassionate in your concerns for others, they will only be able to convince you of this to the extent that they themselves are imbued with these qualities from the field. (An encouraging person was probably encouraged by previous mentors or guidance, hence the earlier water and gaseous particle analogy: retention of love permeates self-replicating patterns). It partially explains families of composers, lineages of inventors, generations of trauma, aggregates of self-definition: porous transmittance via osmotic diffusion of body-mind-state patterns.
If we are echoing the sum total of what already exists, how (and from where) are 'new' signals coming? Indivisible parts (the letter B, the musical note A, the color red, the word, are all vectors of subjective space time that are recombined, mixed, amalgamated - as with the genome, pixel space, and interference patterns of signals).
The human being as crystalline intelligence:
As with (light-based) absorption, reflection, refraction:
Permittivity is before reactivity Permittivity is the sieve of transparency The substrata of the conduit The interstitial zone between in and out.
What passes through the filters of the physical and mental perceptive faculties co-create the vibratory state of the being. Psychedelics are one way to bioelectrically modify the filters that transduce signals.
Food for thought.
Much love.

2020.03.19 03:24 bebopgamer Sahbbat 12: Even the best of us can fall into bad habits

Today's Daf continues exploring the Mishnah prohibition into reading by candle or lamplight during Shabbat. Why? Because of the temptation to adjust the wick to produce more light, which would violate a Torah prohibition.
On 12b Rava suggests that an important sage would be exempt from the prohibition of reading simply because a sage knows better. But the Gemara relates a cautionary tale from Tosefta about Rabbi Yishmael ben Elisha. He was a great sage and thought himself safe to read by candlelight on Shabbat, confident he would never adjust the wick. Yet that's exactly what he did, out of simple absent mindedness. Then he reminded himself of the power of habit and how nobody is beyond mistakes.
It's an important lesson. We're all human and knowledge doesn't exempt us from habit. That's why the Rabbis built a fence around the law in the first place.

2020.03.17 21:24 HistoricalPart0 THIS is the shabbat of all shabbats... "just one shabbat and we'll all be free"

This may be the most important message you have ever received. Please share It with every Jewish person you know.
This Shabbos, it looks like every Jew worldwide will be in their home...
This is an INCREDIBLE chance!
It is written:
“If Israel (the Jews) will keep just one Shabbat properly, Moshiach will come immediately.”
No traveling - this week, God arranged it all! If you can, say Havdala, The blessings which conclude Shabbat, after nightfall on Saturday.
This CAN happen!
This can be that Shabbos that can bring Moshiach!
🕯 🕯 💐 🍷 🍾
Helpful resources below.
Who’s in? Please share!
With prayers for Moshiach and good health for everyone!
Shemot Rabba 25:12; Yerushalmi, Ta’anit 1:1 “Though I have set a limit to ‘the end,’ that it will happen in its time regardless of whether they will do teshuvah or not… the scion of David (Mashiach) will come if they keep just one Shabbat, because the Shabbat is equivalent to all the mitzvot.”
Print up interesting articles from or another Torah site and read them with your family on Shabbat
PS: If you can translate this into any other language, please do so and continue to pass it around. Thank you!

2018.10.27 07:55 SimpleMan418 Wandered into a Reform Temple tonight. It was a big mistake.

I've been out of work and lonely. I cut all ties with Orthodoxy a couple months ago after a particularly traumatic series of experiences that really confirmed the way I felt for a long time.
I thought I'd go to a Reform temple and see some other people. I've been isolated days at a time but I haven't wanted to go through the discomfort of going to the Orthodox community across the county, which is the only place I really know anyone. I stopped my job search a little before candlelighting and told myself I would have a nice Reform Shabbat. No worrying about melachot, just stop the job search and stuff.
It was innocent enough but it just hit me right in the gut in the first 15 minutes of the service. I don't have anything in common with these people. I can't pray at their pace. I don't even particularly believe in a God but I have all these rules just burned into my consciousness that they've never been weighed down by. Don't pause here. Don't sing that over and over.
It wasn't that they were bad, it was that my experience was bad. Why the hell was all this crap burned into me? Why did anyone believe any of this superficial shit matter to anyone? Why couldn't I have had a nice experience, too? Why couldn't I have had rabbis that talked about happy things and God's love and not terrorized the fuck out of me?
Stayed around after the oneg and I felt so self-conscious. The people were nice but I couldn't explain anything. I couldn't explain why I left my last job and why I moved to a new city. I couldn't talk about anything Jewish that they would relate to. I just was... there.
I bought a pepperoni pizza and some Sculpin and now I'm just riding the night out alone.
