Happy Hanukkah –חנכה סמח


Happy Hanukkah everyone.  Just a reminder on how to light the hanukkiah.  First, you light the shamash (helper) candle.  On mine above, it is in the middle.  Then you hold the shamash candle and recite the blessings.  There are 3 blessings on the first night and 2 blessings on the subsequent nights.  Then you light the other candle(s).  As you add candles, you add them to the left of the first candle and light the newest candle first and continue lighting, going left to right.

These are some of the community hanukkiot from around our city.

May you have a blessed Hanukkah.  Much more tomorrow!
