Ailie Cooper asked:

From the story with Rabbi Yosef, what do we learn about shabbos candles?

Ailie Cooper, Teaneck, NJ

The Kollel replies:

Do not light the Shabbos candles immediately before Shabbos, nor too long before Shabbos. It is best to light them starting from Plag Minchah (1.25 Sha'os Zemaniyos before sunset) until 18 minutes before Shabbos.
