Careful With Candle-Lighting

This week, many Flatbush residents received large refrigerator magnets with ads, a marker and “whiteboard” to make lists, and Shabbos candle-lighting times for 2020. However, the times for candle-lighting are approximately 15 minutes before shkiah in Brooklyn, which, though the minhag in a number of kehillos, is two to three minutes later than the more widely-accepted zman of 18 minutes before shkiah.

The times on the magnet seem correct for Lakewood, N.J.
