Hanukkah (also written Chanukah and known as the Festival of Lights) starts on the 25th of the Hebrew month of Kislev each year. On the secular calendar, that day is usually in December. The highlight of the Hanukkah holiday is the menorah.

Why do we light a menorah? Because it represents a miracle.

In the second century, the Syrian-Greek army ransacked the Jewish Temple, leaving it in shambles. When the Jews were able to cleanse and re-dedicate the holy facility, they found only enough sacramental oil to re-light the menorah for one day. Although the Jews knew the menorah was supposed to burn all day, every day, and that it would take eight days until a new supply of oil could be made and brought to the Temple, they re-lit the menorah anyway. They were rewarded with a miracle: The small jar of oil burned for eight days.

To publicize this miracle, Jews light a menorah/hanukiah every night for eight days. Menorah Purchasing Guide



The first menorah was a seven-branched candelabrum that stood in the Temple and was lit everyday by the High Priest. We learn in the Torah that it was fashioned out a one, solid piece of gold and lit each day with the highest quality oil.


The menorah was a symbol of God's light, which he shines throughout the world – even in difficult times. According to tradition, the menorah represents light, wisdom and inspiration.


Although modern menorahs look very different than the original design that stood in the Temple (with eight regular candles and one shamash or worker candle), they serve the same purpose: Spreading light.


Who Lights a Menorah on Hanukkah?

In many Ashkenazi households, each member of the house (including children) lights their own menorah. Sephardim are accustomed to light one menorah per household.


With What Should the Menorah be Lit - Oil vs. Candles?

One can fulfill the mitzvah of lighting the menorah on Hanukkah with candles or with oil. According to some opinions, oil is preferable, since the miracle of Hanukkah happened with oil. If one uses oil, olive oil is preferable, again, since the miracle happened with olive oil. Nonetheless, any kind of oil is acceptable, as long as it burns with a clear flame. You should not mix candles and oil. For those willing to pay for convenience, pre-filled oil bulbs make menorah lighting easy and virtually dripless.


When Should You light Your Menorah?

The menorah is lit every evening for all eight days of Hanukkah. Starting with the first candle on the far right side of the menorah, a new candle is added each evening until the menorah is full.


There are different opinions about the ideal time for candle lighting. Some families light candles at nightfall and others just before that, at sunset. They key is that people walking by your window can see the Hanukkah lights and remember God's miracle. Since people walk (or drive!) in the streets much later today than in the past, it is acceptable to wait to light your menorah until after nightfall to accommodate your families busy schedule.


Ensuring your Menorah is Kosher

One should try to obtain as beautiful a menorah as possible. But we all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The most modern designs are usually made of decorative glass or metal alloys. One can also find themed menorahs (great for children) and display menorahs. The only requirement is that all candles (except the worker candle) be on the same level and no candle block another. All of the radiant, gleaming, stunning and spectacular traditional and modern menorahs at meet these criteria.


Staying Safe

The menorah is a powerful symbol for the Jewish people and the entire world. It can illuminate your home in a very special way. Menorahs, however, can be dangerous if proper precautions are not taken. When lighting a menorah, please keep the following cautionary guidelines in mind:


                    1)     Never allow a child to light his/her menorah unsupervised.

                    2)     Pull back long hair into a ponytail or braid.

                    3)     Ensure your menorah is standing firm and flat; never use a wobbly menorah.

                    4)    Draw back curtains and drapes away from the flames.


Have a happy Hanukkah!
