Shalom.

Do you observe candle lighting for erev Shabbat? Candle lighting occurs before the sun goes down, sunset, sundown, at the conclusion of day corresponding to Shishi, the sixth day of the week, and signals the beginning or coming of the Sabbath, Shabbat. Supervision and safety are important. Some people simply turn on a light to signify the beginning of the Sabbath, sanctifying the Sabbath. It is not permitted to light a flame on the Sabbath because that requires the work of making a fire.

Shalom.
