There are several theories as to how lighting Shabbat candles became a tradition. On a practical note, some scholars say that lighting Shabbat candles was necessary to illuminate dinner tables when fires couldn’t be lit. Others say the tradition traces back to the Jewish matriarch Sarah, Abraham’s wife, whose Shabbat candles burned from sunset to sunset. (It’s because of Sarah that women, not men, traditionally light Shabbat candles)
