Halocho #1092 - Shabbos needs to be bright

Shabbos candles should be lit in the room one eats the Friday night meal. 

It's the housewife's privilege to light the Shabbos candles. If she cannot do so then the husband can light. 

All rooms in the house that will be used on Friday night should have sufficient light that one can see where one is walking. 

Bedrooms that one wants to be dark for sleeping, can have the light shine in from the hallway or even from outside, until one is ready for bed.

This week we finish Sefer Vayikra. This week is also Shabbat MeVarchim Chodesh Sivan. Rosh Chodesh Sivan will be in 9 days time on Friday Erev Shabbat BeMidbar.

Shabbat Shalom uMevorach,
- Danny
