Surrounded by the beauty of mitzvot


"The mitzvah is to place the Chanukah light at the entrance that is close to the road [as opposed to a home entrance set back from the road, within a front yard].

"The mezuzah should be on the right and the Chanukah light on the left. This fulfills the verse (Shir haShirim 7:7), 'How beautiful you are, how pleasant you are!' How beautiful you are with the mezuzah, how pleasant you are with the Chanukah light."

(Masechet Sofrim 20:3)

Have a great day,
