When Does Shabbat Begin?


What time is Shabbat?

5 months


  1. Shabbat begins with the sunset on Friday. In order to ensure that no Shabbat transgressions inadvertently take place due to running out of time, all Shabbat preparations should be completed – and the Shabbat candles should be lit – a minimum of eighteen minutes before sunset.
