Question
Shalom aleichem Rabbi Lauffer. Happy Chanukah. Thank you for answering my last question. Would it be mutar to place the menorah used for lighting Chanukah candles on a "Hanukkah Glass Menorah Drip Tray" https://www.amazon.com/Rite-Lite-Tempered-Glass-Menorah/dp/B00PBFBUOO even if the drip tray has brachos on it, or would this be not proper because you are placing an object on the words of brachos and the wax will fall on them? Thanks a lot.

Question
The Chanukah miracle: A flask with one night’s oil burned for 8 nights. But being that there was oil for one night, the miracle actually lasted only 7 nights. So why is Chanukah 8 nights?

Question
On Chanukah, our Rabbis, Hillel and Shammai, have written about different ways to light the menorah. Most people light 1 menorah according to Hillel, but some people light 2 menorahs: one according to Hillel and the other according to Shammai. I want to know which one should be on the right, Hillel's or Shammai's? Please be specific as to whether looking out from inside, or in from outside. Thank you.

Question
The parsha of Miketz is always read on Shabbat Chanukah. I’ve always understood that nothing in the Torah is by accident or is pure coincidence, and there is always a significance to what is read when. Any significant connection between Miketz and Chanukah?
