  6. Prayer for AIDS Awareness Shabbat

    Before Lighting the Shabbat Candles:

    Tonight, on AIDS Awareness Shabbat, we kindle these lights. Not only do these lights signify the beginning of Shabbat they symbolize much more. Tonight these lights represent the memories that continue to shine of those whom we have lost to the AIDS epidemic.

Tonight these lights are beacons of hope for an AIDS-free world.
