Pre-lighting the Shabbat candles


Some people pre-light the wick for the Shabbat lights (for either candles or oil), so that the wick will catch well later, when it is lit for the mitzvah. In many homes this is done by the husband, as his participation in the mitzvah of Shabbat lights.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 264:9)

Have a great day,
