Ner Neshamah (26h)
26 hour memorial candle
This candle is used for in 2 different occasions:
- as a memorial candle for the deceased
- as a 25h candle on Jewish high holidays for the purpose of transferring fire (cooking and lighting the high holiday candles of the second day of Yom Tov)
You need a >25h candle on almost every Jewish high holiday. We light it before the high holiday in order to have a source of fire available (on Yom Tov we can transfer fire).
