This is the first Shabbat of this New Year. As we lit the candles at sunset, we thanked the Lord for this new beginning, for the understanding that Yeshua is the Messiah, for the message inherent in the Scriptures and symbolized by the lighting of the two Shabbat candles: God is the Creator and He is our Redeemer. The rabbis say that the candles of Shabbat are a testimony about God's two great acts: creation and redemption.

Yeshua is the light of the world. May HIs light shine in every heart and every home this year.

  1. What beautiful Challah loaves! I don't celebrate a 7th day Sabbath, but it appeals to me. I'm visiting your blog for the first time, and enjoying it very much. May the Lord's anointing be upon your family and your labor for Him.
