Remember the Sabbath Day: Parsha Yitro

How do we perform the commandment of "remembering" Shabbat? Maimonides explains that it is by marking the beginning of Shabbat by reciting Kiddush and marking the end of Shabbat by reciting Havdallah.

Remember The Sabbath Day Dear Rabbi Raskin, what is purgatory? I never believe in that. I am not sure. Aboout the Havdalah candle. Can one use a regular candle if we do not have one with more than one wick? If there is no one around who is friend and Jewish, one is alone, how do one celebrate Havdala? Is there a prayer for a lone person? Thank you Rabbi Raskin for your kindness in teaching about Shabbat. Reply
