Light-Up or Lights-Down?: Two schools of thought on kindling the menorah

The Academy of Hillel says that the optimum manner to light the Chanukah candles is to light one the first night, adding a candle each subsequent night of the holiday.

This class will explore these contrasting views and shed light on life's most existential questions.
