Sanctification of the Moon (Kiddush Levanah) is a Jewish ritual, performed outside at night, in which a series of prayers are recited to bless the new moon. It is preferable that Kiddush Levanah is recited at the departure of Sabbath. The boxes with the fragrant spices are used during Havdalah ceremony marking the end of a Sabbath day.
