no source

The Minhag women have when lighting
Shabbos candles to wave their hands
over the candles 3 times, has no
מקור. (source)

There is no mention of it anywhere*.
The only reason to do so is because of
אל תטוש תורת אמך

ראשונים ואחרונים*

There is also no mention in Shulchan Aruch
for women to place their hands on
their faces to cover their eyes.

It says to place  the hands in front of the candles
to block the light from the candles
Perhaps when lighting many candles it's
more practical to cover the eyes to solve
the עובר לעשייתן (Can be done by simply closing the eyes.
No need for hands. Here again, אל תטוש תורת אמך)

  1. Vilna Gaon, Biur HaGra commentary
    on Mishlei, chapter 11, verse 25:

    “Whoever feeds other people [especially the poor]
    will receive a blessing that causes him to feel
    satisfied with his food, in addition to wealth.”



    The Koran teaches that Jews are
    the biggest enemies of Muslims.

    The Koran’s 5th chapter, verse 82 says:

    “You will find that the people most
    hostile towards the believers [Muslims]
    are the Jews and the polytheists...”

    This quick and accurate and relevant quote
    from The Koran is NEVER MENTIONED
    in the Israel-bashing mainstream-news-media
    and it never will be, because it sends
    the wrong message:

    It tells the truth about Islam!


    If you want the truth about Israel
    and the Middle East, then do not waste
    your time with the FAKE NEWS
    of The New York Times and the
    Israel-bashing mainstream-news-media.
