Lighting Chanukah Candles
Must you light Chanukah candles at your home? What do you do if you are traveling? Can you light at someone else’s home when invited for dinner? Can you fulfill the mitzvah in a public location like the town square? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink as he surveys the sources and the opinions of the great poskim.
