Single girls It's true that girls over three light Shabbos Candles. It should have been in the script! These videos are, however part of an entire exhibition in which the Village/Shtetl House has a Shabbos table with an extra candle (and it's explained that this is for the daughter of the house) Reply

Why do they only mention that Married women light two Shabbat candles? Girls above the age of three also light a single Shabbat candle (supervised by an adult)! Reply
