“Every Friday night I light Shabbos candles with my mom.  It’s my job to set up five candles, four for my mom, and one for me.  I put a tichel on.  I cover my eyes and say a bracha.  I thank Hashem for all the great gifts He gives me.  I always make sure that I light on time and sometimes I even light early.  I am so proud to be a Jewish girl.”
