HAVDOLOH 008 CANDLE 10 1/2 " LONG X 1 1/2 " WIDE X 1/2 " DEPTH 

What is Havdalah?

Havdalah is a brief ceremony that marks the end of the Sabbath, the Jewish Day of Rest.

The name Havdalah comes from the Hebrew word l'havdeel, which means to distinguish or separate.
Havdalah is a ceremony that distinguishes between the holy Sabbath day and the secular work week.

Anyone looking to practice more Jewish rituals should consider Havdalah.
The ceremony is short, simple, sweet and spiritual.

What is Needed?

Three things are needed for the Havdalah ceremony:

    * glass of kosher wine or grape juice
    * some fragrant spices (cloves, cinnamon or bay leaves are commonly used)
    * a special Havdalah candle

The wine is used to symbolize the joy of the Sabbath.

The spices are smelled so that the sweetness of the Sabbath will be carried over into the work week.

The candle is braided and has at least two wicks which form one flame when lit.
The braiding symbolizes the unity found at the end of the Sabbath.
Since the blessing refers to "lights of the fire" in the plural,
two wicks are used in one candle to enable one to extinguish them at the same time.
If a Havdalah candle is not available,
one can hold two candles together so that their wicks burn together as one flame.

How To Do Havdalah?

The Havdalah service marks the end of the Sabbath,
and therefore should be performed only after nightfall on Saturday night.
Nightfall is the time when three stars can be seen in the darkened sky.

The most pleasant way to perform the ceremony is to have all the participants
stand close together in a circle
and to dim the lights so candle light becomes the focus.

The Havdalah Service

The service begins with Biblical verses that praise G-d as our salvation.
Then blessings are recited over the wine, the spices and the candle.
The service concludes with the Havdalah blessing.

Biblical Verses

The braided candle is lit and held by a child if one is present.
( Legend has it that you hold it up high for a tall shidduch )

The leader raises a cup of wine and says:

    Hinei eil y'shu'ati, evtach v'lo efchad, ki ozi v'zimrat Yah Adonai va'y'hi li lishua.
    Behold, G-d is my salvation, I will trust and will not be afraid,
because my strong faith and song of praise for G-d will be my salvation.
    (Isaiah 12:2)

    Ush'avtem mayim b'sason mima'ay'nei ha-y'shua.
    You shall joyfully draw water out of the wells of salvation.
    (Isaiah 12:3)

    La'Adonai ha-y'shua, al amcha virchatecha, sela.
To G-d is the salvation, on his people may he bestow his blessing, sela.
    (Psalms 3:9)

    Adonai tzva'ot imanu, misgav lanu Elohei Ya'akov, sela.
    G-d master of legions is with us, a fortress protecting us
is the G-d of Jacob, sela.
    (Psalms 46:12)

    Adonai tz'va'ot ashrei adam botei'ach bach.
G-d master of legions, praised is the person who trusts in You.
    (Psalms 84:13)

    Adonai hoshiya ha-melech ya'aneinu v'yom koreinu.
    G-d save ! The King will answer on the day we call.
    (Psalms 20:10)

All participants say together the joyous words that were spoken by the Jews
when they were saved from the plot of Haman:

    La'y'hudim hayta ora v'simcha v'sason vikar, kein t'hiyeh lanu.
    The Jewish People had light and joy and gladness and honor, So may it be for us.
    (Esther 8:16)

The leader raises a cup of wine and says:

    Kos y'shu'ot ehsa u'v'shaym Adonai ekra.
    I will lift the cup of salvation and in G-d's name shall call.
    (Psalms 116:13)

The Blessing over the Wine

The leader says:

Savri moronan v'rabonan v'rabosai
    Baruch ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, boray pri ha-gafen.
By your leave, my Masters, Rabbis and Teachers
    Blessed are You, Adonai our G-d, King of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.

all present
say: Amen

The wine is put down without anyone drinking from it.

The Blessing over the Spices

The leader says:

    Baruch ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, borei minei v'samim.
    Blessed are You, Adonai our G-d, King of the Universe, Creator of many kinds of spices.

all present say: Amen

The spices are passed around so that all participants can sniff them.

The Blessing over the Candle

(At this point some people close the electric lights in the room
leaving only the Havdalah candle as illumination for this part of the blessing)

The candle that was kindled at the beginning of the ceremony is raised high,

All participants hold their hands, with half-clenched fingers, up to the light of the candle
so that their fingernails catch the reflection of the light. Why?
Some believe this creates shadows which, as the blessing says, makes a distinction between light and darkness.
Others believe that we should make use of the light after blessing it.

The leader says:

    Baruch ata Adonai Eloheynu Melech Ha'olam boray me'oray ha'esh.
    Blessed are you, Oh Lord our G-d, King of the Universe creator of the light in the fire.

all present say: Amen

The Final Havdalah Blessing

The leader says:

    Baruch ata Adonai Eloheynu Melech Ha'olam, ha'mavdil, bayn kodesh le'chol,
bayn ohr le'choshech, bayn Yisra'el la'amim, bayn yom ha'shevi'i le'sheshet yemay ha ma'aseh.
    Blessed are you, Oh Lord our G-d, King of the Universe
who created the distinction between the holy and the secular, between the light and the darkness,
between Israel and the other nations, between the Seventh day and the six days of the work week.

    Baruch ata Adonai, ha'mavdil bayn kodesh le'chol !
    Blessed are You Oh Lord, who separates between the holy and the secular !

all present say: Amen

The leader drinks most of the wine in the cup
He then extinguishes the flame by pouring the leftover wine over the flame into the plate.
This symbolizes the Sabbath influence spilling over into the work week.
It is traditional to dip the fingers into the wine plate
and touch his eyelids, behind ears and inner pockets with them.
This symbolizes that the light of the mitzvah will guide us and bring us blessings for the week to come.



The Havdalah ceremony may be concluded by singing songs.
Three traditional songs are
Ha'mavdil Bayn Kodesh Le'chol, Shavua Tov and Eliahu HaNavi.

Ha'mavdil Bayn Kodesh Le'chol Song
(He who separates between the holy and the secular)

Ha'mavdil, Ha'mavdil bayn kodesh le'chol
chatoseinu hu yimchol
Zar'einu vechaspeinu yarbeh kachol
(ve)kakochavim balailah.
shavu'a tov, ayayay
shavu'a tov, ayayay
gam erev tov, yehe lanu
Veshalom aleinu
shalom aleinu
rechem me'aleinu
ve'al kol yisrael.
Ha'mavdil, Ha'mavdil

He who separates between the holy and the secular our sins he shall forgive

Shavua Tov Song
(A Good Week)

    Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov, Shavua tov.
    A good week, a week of peace, may gladness reign and joy increase.

The twisted candle brightens our hearts
As together we watch the Sabbath depart.
We smell the spices and taste the wine
Shavua tov, may you have a good week,
May you find the happiness you seek.
Shavua tov, may your week be fine
May it be as sweet as the Sabbath wine.
We say goodbye to a special friend,
Another Shabbat has come to an end.

Eliahu Ha'Navi Song
(Elijah the Prophet)

    Eliyahu Ha'Navi, Eliyahu Ha'Tishbi,
Eliyahu... Eliyahu... Eliyaaahu Ha'Giladi.
Bimheira, b'yamaynu yavo aleinu,
im mashiach ben David, im mashiach ben David.
    Elijah the Prophet, Elijah the Tishbite,
Elijah Elijah Elijah the Gileadite.
    With speed, in our days, Come to us, With the Messiah,
The son of David The son of David
