Candle Lighting Times

The sanctuary of Congregation Beth El–Keser Israel is located within the New Haven Eruv at approximately North 41° 19′ 43.10″ West 72° 57′ 41.80″ and is about 70 feet (21 meters) above sea level. Candle lighting times are calculated for that location and are rounded back to the nearest minute so the lighting time will be 18 to 19 minutes before the halakhic (Jewish legal) definition of sunset. The halakhic sunset will be about one minute later than civil sunset. If you are within New Haven or its surrounding towns your recommended lighting time will be within a minute of the time listed below, well within the “safety margins” established by tradition.
