Good Sabbath Everyone

The Shabbat candles are lit at least eighteen minutes before sunset on Friday.

ברוך אתה ה’ א‑לוהינו מלך העולם, אשר קדשנו במצותיו וצונו להדליק נר של שבת.‏

Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu Melekh ha‑olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu l’hadlik ner shel Shabbat.

Translation: “Blessed are You, Lord, our God, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to light the Shabbat candle[s].”

The Chabad version of the blessing adds the word קודש at the end of the blessing, making “… the candle of the holy Shabbat,” transliterated, “… ner shel Shabbat kodesh.”
