What Do You Light For Chankuah?
When I was growing up, there were only candle Chanukah menorahs and the big question was:
"How many nights would we remember to light it?"
There was some variety in the "size." Most used the standard candles we bought from the local shul, but we also had a "child-sized" menorah in which we put tiny "birthday cake" candles.
Here in Israel, I discovered the beauty of lighting olive oil. It must be good olive oil, the type which is irresistible on salad or "mopped up" with fresh bread or pita. Every time we've bought "bargain" olive oil, we've discovered the hard way that it's just green dyed machine oil or worse.
Time to stock up.
