An elegant and classic braided beeswax Havdalah Candle hand-crafted from the city of Safed in the Galilee and for use during the Havdalah ceremony.

Havdalah is a ceremony that marks the symbolic end of Shabbat on a Saturday night after the appearance of three stars in the sky.  The name Havdalah comes from the Hebrew word l'havdil which means to distinguish or separate.  Havdalah is a ceremony that distinguishes between the holy Shabbat and the secular work week.

The Havdalah candle is customarily braided since the braiding symbolizes the unity found at the end of Shabbat and it has at least two wicks since the blessing refers to lights of the fire in the plural.
