Hadlakat Neirot – Kavod vs. Oneg

In this gemara shiur we went through some of the fundamental texts relating to the obligation of candle lighting.  We analyzed the shita of Rashi who talks about a very practical concern of not bumping into one another in a dark home.  Rambam then categorizes the candles both as kavod shabbat as well as oneg shabbat.  We analyzed the basic problem within the Ramabam and then discussed the approach of the Aruch haShulchan.

Here is a link to the key mekorot.

In addition, here is the audio of the shiur:
