The importance of publicizing the Chanukah miracle


"If a person has a choice between fulfilling the Mitzvah of the Menorah or of Kiddush on Shabbat, which has precedence? Kiddush is a more frequent (and therefore more significant) Mitzvah, but Chanukah lights publicize the miracle Gd performed for us!"

"Chanukah lights have precedence; such is the greatness of publicizing a Divine miracle."

(Talmud, Shabbat 23b)

Have a great day,
