Chanukah: A quick how-to

  • Chanukah begins this Sunday night (Dec 2, 2018)!
  • It is a Mitzvah to light the Menorah every night of Chanukah, ideally at nightfall or soon after. Before kindling the candles we recite its special blessings. 
  • When Chanukah falls on Friday night, we light the Chanukah candles before lighting the Shabbat candles.  
  • When Chanukah comes out on Saturday night, we must wait for Shabbat to end at nightfall (this year at 6:00 pm in the Clear Lake Area) before kindling the Menorah.
  • See for a complete Chanukah guide, including the blessings for lighting the candles.  

Wishing you a joyous and bright Chanukah!
