HALACHA OF THE WEEK: Chanukah Part 1: When is the Ideal Time to Light Candles?​

The Talmud [Shabbat 21b] writes that the proper time for lighting the Chanukah light is “from the setting of the sun.” 

 

But what is "the setting of the sun?"

 

According to Rambam [Hilchot Chanukah 4:5] "the setting of the sun" is the beginning of sunset (i.e. "Shkiah"), while both Tur Shulchan Aruch [Orech Chaim 672] and Shulchan Aruch [Orech Chaim 672:1] rule that this refers to the END of the process of the sun setting (i.e. Tzeit Hakochavim). 

 

While this dispute has not been definitively resolved, Aruch Hashulchan [ibid. 672:4] writes that the generally accepted practice is to light Chanukah candles at the later time, but he does note that some do follow Rambam's position and still light from sunset. In fact, to avoid all doubts, Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, used to light very long candles at the beginning of sunset so that the candles should last at least a half an hour after the end of sunset (Tzeit Hakochavim).

 

However, most other authorities rule that we do not have to be concerned with the earlier time of lighting, and only consider the later time of "tzait hakochavim".

 

Therefore, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef [Yalkut Yosef 5:208] ruled that in Israel the proper time to light is fifteen minutes after sunset. According to Rabbi Shimon Eider, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein [Halachot of Chanukah p. 20], would light chanukah candles in New York, thirteen to eighteen minutes after sunset. [Interestingly, Rabbi Aaron Felder [Moadei Yeshurun p. 7], disagreed and wrote that Reb Moshe ruled that the preferable time to light is ten minutes after sunset.] Rabbi Aharon Kotler [Halachot, ibid.] when living in the New York area lit twenty-five to thirty minutes after sunset and Rabbi Yaakov Kaminetsky [Emet L'Yaakov p. 251] ruled that Chanukah lights in the New York area ideally should be kindled approximately twenty minutes after sunset. 

 

All of these New York times would be similar in Chicago, and therefore, Chanukah candles should be lit approximately 10-20 minutes after sunset and remain burning for at least 30 minutes.

FATHER & SON LEARNING 

DVAR TORAH

For seven years Yaakov worked for Lavan just so that he could marry Rachel. But then, Lavan tricked him and switched Rachel for her older sister Leah. When Yaakov complained, Lavan proposed that he agree to work for an additional seven years and then he would give him Rachel.

 

Why didn't Yaakov object and say that he had already worked for seven years and he should be given Rachel without any further deals?

 

Rav Dovid Feinstein suggested that the reason Yaakov agreed to this "new deal" was to preserve Leah's sense of self-respect. After all, how would Leah have felt if Yaakov only worked for Rachel's hand in marriage, but "received" Leah without any work?

 

Yaakov's willingness to accept Lavan's deal and work another seven years was not because he did not know how to negotiate. In fact, according to Rav Dovid Feinstein, Yaakov knew that if he pressed Lavan, he would have gotten his way. But that would have humiliated Leah.

 

Therefore, Yaakov worked an extra seven years just to preserve Leah's dignity. Which, said Rav Feinstein, should be a lesson to everyone of how important it is to maintain other's self worth and self esteem.
