The menorah1

The Menorah

We place the candles in the menorah from the right to the left. When we light the menorah we say the blessings for the candles.

There are many different styles of menorot (plural for menorah). In most cases the Shamash (the helper candle) is in the middle or to the left side. Some are made for burning oil and some for candles.

The Menorah or candle holder is a really important part of the tradition of Hanukkah. It is why we call the holiday "the festival of light.”We light the menorah from the left side to the right side.

How is this candle lighting different than the Kwanzaa candles?
