It’s a mitzvah to light candles. We do it on Shabbat, and holidays. The Emanuel synagogue now enables you to do a double mitzvah:Â light candles and use candles made from clean burning, renewable, American soy wax.Â Soy candles are clean burning, do not drip and fit any candlestick. Combine the mitzvah of lighting candles with the mitzvah of helping preserve the planet. Switch to soy !
Eco-friendly soy candles are available at the newly reopened Emanuel Gift Shop. The starter set includes 12 candles and two glass converters for $10. The converters fit easily into any standard candle sticks and are reusable indefinitely. Candle refills are available $6 for 12 candles or $28 for 60 candles.
