They are almost too beautiful to use....but please do. These candles add a warm, beautiful and elegant touch to your Shabbat and table. Nestled in the hills of northern Israel lies the picturesque city of Tzfat (Safed) - one of Israel's four holy cities. Safed Candles is famous for reviving the ancient art of candle-making - specializing in drip less kosher candles. Their craftsmen skillfully convert pure beeswax and other materials into beautiful Shabbat and taper candles.
