Do we light candles on the second day of Rosh Hashana?

Resposta

As soon as it is sunset of the first day of Rosh Hashana, candles are lit for the second day. You should light a match from an existing fire because one cannot create a new fire. People usually prepare a yahrtzeit candle before the festival and take light from it whenever they need it. Some take light from oven burners that run on gas.
