Havdalah

The Havdalah ceremony begins Saturday at sundown, at the termination of the Sabbath. Havdalah means “separation,” and it marks the separation between the holy and the ordinary; between the Sabbath and the work week.

 

There are three parts of the Havdalah ceremony—the drinking of wine, the inhaling of fragrant spices, and the lighting of a braided multi-wicked candle which is meant to burn as a torch, symbolizing the creation of fire.

 

One explanation for the use of spices during the Havdalah ceremony is that during the Sabbath the Jew is given an extra soul which brings peace of mind and a heightened sense of spirituality. At the termination of the Sabbath, this extra soul leaves, causing the Jew to become saddened. Inhaling the fragrant spices is a comfort for this loss, as well as a comfort at the thought of facing the coming workweek.
