Please take note that during that these days and nights when we have windows open and breezes pass through the house and Sukkah, we must be careful while Kol Nidre night, Sukkot/Yom Tov and Shabbos candles are lit. Here are some suggestions:
1. Don’t place the candles near curtains in a draft or in the path of an electric fan.
2. Have the candles base weighted or even place the candles in a hurricane glass.
3. Stay awake until the candles go out.
4. Use shorter candles.
5. Place candles on a fireproof surface or metal tray.
Keep an eye on them for safety and Inspiration!
