When we light the Shabbis flame we step away from strife and pain.
We close down screens, machines, and techno-stress, and enter reverently into the kingdom of our Shabbis rest.
Six days each week we work and toil, but Shabbis halts this mad, mad boil!
A chance to sing, to sigh, to think, to rejuvenate and face the week.
Shabbis candles play an important role in awakening our Jewish soul.
