Subject:  Shabbat Candle Lighting
Message:  Lichvod Harav,

What is the din for sephardim regarding lighting candles on Friday Night if one will be having seudah rishonah at a friends home? Should the wife light at home before going or should the wife light at the residence where she and her family will be eating the first meal, or should the wife not light at all (since the hostess will be lighting).

Thank you.
Reply:  The wife should light at home before leaving. Make sure to light a light that will be in use when you come home. Of course, you'll use an electric light besides the candles.
