|Halacha - Lighting Shabbat candles when invited out and not coming back till after shabbat|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
There are some who are machmir not to light 2 sets of candles in the same place, however according to this opinion one must also turn off the electric light in the dining room before lighting the candles because otherwise it is already light.
The general custom is to make a beracha on the increase in light added by the additional candles, and more than one woman may light with a beracha in the same dining room.
