Shabbat candles for those who cannot see


We have been learning about Shabbat candles.

A woman who cannot see still lights for the sake of others in the home.

If she has a husband who can see, he should recite the blessing, since he gets the main benefit. If others are lighting their own candles, they should recite the blessing, for the same reason. However, if the only other residents are not lighting their own and are not her husband, she should recite the blessing.

(Mishneh Berurah 263:14)

Have a great day,
