Lighting the Hanukkah menorah is part of Jewish tradition. Here are a some guidelines you need to know before lighting a menorah at home:

  • It is most ideal for the Hanukkah to be placed outside the main door where everyone can see it to show everyone the miracle of Hanukkah.
  • The menorah should be positioned on the left side of the doorpost. Since the mezuzah is placed on the right side, a person entering the door will be surrounded by mitzvot. However, if there is no mezuzah on the main entrance, you can put the menorah on the right side of the door.
  • If you live in an apartment building, you can light the menorah inside the house near a window that faces the street.
  • Place the menorah by a window where the maximum number of people can see it. Publicizing the miracle is an important part in fulfilling the mitzvah.
