Every Friday night, all over the world, little Jewish children get up from the dinner table at a signal from their parents and go open the door of the house to let in Shekinah the Sabbath Bride, also called the Sabbath queen. 
They stand and hold the door open for a minute to let her pass thru.
Note how her dress looks like a tablecloth. The table is every home’s sacred altar. So that’s where Shekinah can dwell now that the Temple is gone.
On the Friday night table are always at least two candles, called the lights of Sabbath. 
Jewish brides to this day always get at least one pair of candlesticks as a wedding gift.
