Sanctification of the Moon (Kiddush Levanah) is a prayer said when the New Moon is visible. It is preferable that Kiddush Levanah is recited at the departure of the Sabbath. The boxes with the fragrant spices are used during Havdalah ceremony (marking the end of the Sabbath), here they form “Jewish town” in the night.
