Shabbat candles for unmarried girls


We have been learning about lighting Shabbat candles.

Young unmarried girls have developed the custom of lighting for themselves, even when living in the house where their mothers light. This is acceptable, but they should light in separate areas of the room.

If they must light in the same part of the room, they should not use the same candelabra.

(Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 263:7)

Have a great day,
