Kedushah of Menorah


There are certain things which Halacha prohibits to do in front of certain things because of Kedushah. You can’t for example be naked or have sex in front of an exposed visible sefer or mezuzah. You can’t bring sefarim or teffilin into the restroom. So what’s the Halacha about a menorah on Hanukah? Can you get changed, have sex in front of, bring into the restroom etc? Do any rabbis speak against this? Sources please



  1. While the Menorah is lit, it is forbidden to anything front of it that is unseemly. Once the oil has burned out, it is permissible to do things in front of it that are otherwise forbidden when the lights are burning. However, it is always unseemly to take the Menorah into a toilet.
