Earliest Shabbat of the year tomorrow

.
The view from our moshav as the sun sets behind the Jerusalem Hills and soon sinks into the Mediterranean over on the west side of Israel.
(The sea is less than an hour's drive from here.)

Sabbath candles are lit every Friday evening, 18 minutes (I think) before sunset.
That means tomorrow candles must be lit at 3:55 pm.
So early! The earliest time of the whole year.

The soft colors of sunset are for SkyWatch Friday.

And tonight is not too early to start wishing you Shabbat shalom.
