Each night of Hanukkah, we add a candle to the hanukkiah we place in the window of our homes. It is lovely to watch the light increase and push against the darkness of the winter nights. The Talmud teaches that by adding candles we are increasing the holiness in the world; in this section of Ritualwell we offer a variety of ways to increase the beauty and awe your candle lighting brings to your home and the world.
Hanukkah Candle Lighting
I notice how the increased light in my window is mirrored in my body, in my own “inner chambers,” and I feel great anticipation for this new phase of life.
