Chanukah Candle Lighting Schedule 2014

Light the first Hanukkah candle on Tuesday, December 16th.  Here’s the simple rule for how to do it right. Place the first candle on the right side of the Hanukkiyah (a menorah, but with nine branches, not seven). Use the shamash (servant candle) to light it.  On the second night, add a candle to the left of the first one, but light the newest candle first, then move to the right and light the older one. With each successive night, add to the left, but light to the right.  Got it?  Good!


There are three blessings to be said on the first night of Chanukah, then two on all subsequent nights.


    Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, Asher Kidshanu B’mitzvotav V’tzeevanu L’hadlik Ner Shel Hanukkah.
    We praise You, Adonai, our God, ruler of the universe, who has made us holy through commandments and ordained that we kindle the Hanukkah lights.

    Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, She-Ah-sah Neeseem Lavoteinu Bayah-meem Haheym Baz’man Hazeh.
    We praise You, Adonai, our God, ruler of the universe, who performed miracles for our ancestors in those days at this time in the year.

    And only on the first night, we say:

    Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha-Olam, Shehecheyanu Vekeeyemanu Vehigeeyanu Laz’man Hazeh.
    We praise You, Adonai, Our God, ruler of the universe, who has kept us in life and sustained us and permitted us to reach this joyous time.

The Rabbi, Officers, Board and Members of Congregation Beth Israel join in wishing each other a very happy and joyous Chanukah.
