Chanukah Candle Lighting
Chanukah begins Thursday night, December 7. There are different customs regarding when to light Chanukah candles. Those who are uncertain of their family custom should light 10 to 25 minutes after sunset (4:31 PM on Thursday, December 7) or wait until nightfall (5:06 PM on Thursday, December 7). Candles should last until 30 minutes after nightfall.
Friday afternoon, December 8, one should light Chanukah candles prior to Shabbat candles and ensure that the Chanukah candles will burn for at least 90 minutes (approximately 30 minutes after nightfall). If one does not have long lasting candles, setting up tea lights or using surplus Shabbat candles is fine. 4:13 PM is candle lighting. The earliest one may light is plag haMincha, 3:36 PM Friday. December 8. Candles must last until 30 minutes after nightfall.
There are halachic limits on some forms of eating and other activities prior to candle lighting. This is meant to elevate the significance and sanctity of the mitzvah. See Peninei Halakha- Zemanim, Chapter 12 for Laws and Practices of Chanukah and section 13 for pre-lighting halachot.
