The Concept: Woman of Valor
The Source: The Sabbath Eve songs L’Cha Dodi, Eshet Chayil
(Woman of Valor), the blessing over the Sabbath candles and the mother’s prayer for the well being of the family.
The Design: The Family is an eternal Structure in Jewish tradition,
thanks to the unceasing efforts of the woman of the
house. The candles symbolize the light of
spirituality which emanates from the mother of the
house. This light represents the spiritual pillars of the
Jewish family. The candles’ flames are crowns which
symbolize the spiritual kingdom created by the Jewish wife and mother.
