It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Shabbat by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening. Greeting the Shabbat (and also Jewish holidays) are girls and women across the globe. They light candles, which usher in peace and blessing to their homes and to the world.

The Shabbat & Holiday Times app will quickly and easily get you the times you need for the upcoming  Shabbat and Jewish Holidays.

Times are automatically selected based on your current location and you can choose to show times for any other location worldwide by entering a city or US Zip code.

The app lists both Shabbat and holiday candle lighting as well as the time the Shabbat or holiday ends. It also provides quick access to more information on the upcoming Parshah (weekly Torah reading) and Jewish holidays from the wealth of information provided by Chabad.org.

Shabbat, our sages tell us, is “a taste of the World to Come.” As the six-day workweek culminates in Shabbat, so too will the six millennia of our work and toil to make to world a home for G‑d culminate in the messianic era—“the day that is wholly Shabbat and tranquility, for life everlasting.” (Talmud, Berachot 57b; Nachmanides on Genesis 1; Grace After Meals)

“And at that time, there will be no hunger or war, no jealousy or rivalry. For goodness will be plentiful, and all delicacies available as dust. The entire occupation of the world will be only to know G‑d . . . For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of G‑d, as the waters cover the sea.” (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Kings 12:5)

May it be now.  Shabbat Shalom.
