Can You Use Any Candle Holders For Shabbat?

Yes, you can use any type of candle holders for Shabbat. What’s important is the act of lighting the candles and the feeling of reverence and welcome for the arrival of Shabbat. If you don’t have candle holders or candlesticks, you can improvise and stick your candles in a bottle, place them on a saucer, or just use tea lights.

Most people prefer to welcome the arrival of Shabbat with their best silver Shabbat candlesticks. Traditional Shabbat candlesticks are made of 925 sterling silver, but there’s a growing demand for modern Shabbat candlesticks made of aluminum, ceramics, polymer clays, and even cast concrete. There are no rules about which candlesticks you have to buy; it’s a matter of personal taste and style.

Sterling Silver Shabbat Candlesticks

925 sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks look amazing laid out on a traditional Shabbat dining table. The silver is easy to polish to a gleaming shine and adds a real feeling of luxury and style to any table. Sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks come in many designs, including Yemenite filigree work and European renaissance styles.

Aluminum Candlesticks

Anodized aluminum candlesticks sound like an industrial product but are actually top-quality designer Judaica. Anodized aluminum is prized for its bold colors and ultra-robust qualities. If you want modern Shabbat candlesticks with a minimalist look, anodized aluminum candlesticks are a great choice.

Unique Shabbat Candlesticks

Unique Shabbat candlesticks cover a wider range of styles and materials. The most exciting designs are handmade from modern materials like clay polymers, cast concrete, ceramics, and other non-flammable materials. Unique Shabbat candlesticks can also include vintage art deco designs and genuine antiques.

What is Special About Shabbat Candles?

There’s nothing special about Shabbat candles themselves. It’s the ritual of ushering in Shabbat and reciting the blessings that make everything special. If you were stranded on a desert island and lit an improvised lamp instead of a candle, it would be your remembering and celebration of Shabbat, and the recitation of the traditional blessing that counted. Sterling silver Shabbat candlesticks and handmade beeswax candles are wonderful ritual items, but ultimately, they are luxuries.

Shabbat candlesticks are candlesticks that are lit on the Sabbath and other Jewish holidays. These candles represent the light of God, which is said to have rested on Mount Sinai when Moses received the Ten Commandments. The candles are lit in a special order, with the Shabbat candle being lit first and traditionally placed in a holder that is higher than all others. The other candles are then lit in descending order of height so that they do not interfere with the light of the Shabbat candle.


Shabbat candlesticks are lit every Friday night to welcome the Sabbath, and they are extinguished before Saturday morning. The candles on Shabbat candlesticks represent the light of God that is present in our world, and they also symbolize spiritual enlightenment. The Shabbat candlesticks are said to be symbolic of a person’s soul and their spiritual journey.


The instructions for cleaning silver Shabbat candlesticks are as follows:


1. Fill a bucket with hot water and add dishwashing liquid.

2. Place the silver candlesticks in the bucket and let them soak for 10 minutes.

3. Take a sponge or cloth, dip it in the soapy water, and scrub off any tarnish on the surface of the candlesticks.

4. Rinse off the soap under running water and dry with a towel or paper towel to avoid scratching.
