�Blessed are You, O Lord, our God, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine. Blessed are You, O Lord, Our God, who creates the species of fragrance. Blessed are You, O Lord, Our God, who creates the illuminations of the fire.
Blessed are You, O Lord, Our God, King of the universe, who separates between holy and secular, between light and darkness, between Israel and the nations, between the seventh day and the six days of labor. Blessed are You, O Lord, who separates between holy and secular.�
This image is an expression of the blessings of Havdallah, said at the end of the Sabbath to acknowledge the conclusion of the holy day. Havdallah means separation. The holy day of rest, that God gave us is separated from the rest of the secular work week (as represented by the fire). The wine, the spices and the fire are blessed in addition to the acknowledgment of the separation.
A tri-wicked candle is used and its image can be seen in the braided lines of blue. The braided design is repeated as the fragrance from the spices flow up through the heavenly realm, to God, signified by the red color. The shape of a wine goblet anchors the center of the painting just as the Kiddush blessing over the wine anchors so many of our celebrations and holy days.
The two circles represent our soul and the added soul we receive for Shabbat to aid in our spiritual journey. At Havdallah, we say goodbye to the second soul.
