This past Friday we celebrated our daughter Laya's third birthday party with a pre Shabbat candle lighting ceremony and celebration.
There is a custom for girls to start lighting their own Shabbat candle from the age of three and as of last Friday, Laya will join me by lighting a Shabbat candle of her own every week.
We showed this cute video at the celebration before Laya lit her first candle. It shows her preparing and excitedly looking forward to Shabbat. Enjoy!
