Lighting the Dark

Lighting the Dark

4th Night of Chanukah

 Email

Shabbat candles are lit before dark, inside our home. By contrast, Chanukah's candles have to light into the darkness of the night, and near a window facing out into the street.

Shabbat candles bring light within, but the Chanukah lights go further, also transforming the darkness outside.
