Question
Dear Rabbi: Unfortunately my wife (Yael bat Channah) is now already nearly a year in hospitals and Rehab Nursing Homes. She has many times been unconscious, not aware of what was going on, but thank G-d her health has improved and she understands now most of the things, that happen around her. At home I continued always to candle the lights for Shabbos and Chanuka, even when she couldn't. If I bring her electric Shabbos candles and an electric Menora, can she say the bracha over the light kindling? Real fire is not allowed in the Hospital or Nursing Home. Too dangerous.

Question
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!

Question
Hi Rabbi, can you give me a crash course in the laws and customs of Chanukah? Thanks in advance and I hope you have a happy Chanukah!

Question
Dear Rabbi, what’s your favorite Chanuka story for inspiration? Of course we’re inspired by the Jewish People’s miraculous victory over ancient Greece, and the burning of the Menorah for 8 nights, but do you have any “more modern” story that you would share with me for inspiration today? Thanks!
