Hi Rabbi Lauffer,
I just had a troubling mental conversation with myself. I don't know why this popped into my head but I asked myself how much do I really value mitzvos. If someone would offer me $1000 would I sell him my mitzvah of ner Chanukah from tonight? Then I thought no what about about $10,000 then I thought no probably not. Then I thought what if someone plunked down $100,000 cash in front of me for my mitzvah of first night of Chanukah. I'm afraid I would have a hard time not selling it. And this makes me sad. I wish I could say even if he gave me a 100 million I wouldn't sell it but I know I'd be lying to myself. I would like to know what I can do about this. What sefer to learn? How to value mitzvos more? Please give me a thorough answer I'm very troubled by this.
Thank you for your time!
Is it okay to light a mixed colored set of small red, green, blue, and yellow Chanukah candles?
Does it matter as to the order that they are placed in the candle holder and the order in which they're lit?
And what's the name of the holder, "menorah" or "chanukiah"?
Thanks and happy Chanukah!
