"HaNerot Halalu"


The order of lighting the Menorah is: One first recites all of the blessings for lighting [the three of the first night, or the two of the other nights], then one lights the first candle, and then one recites "HaNerot Hallalu," a paragraph describing the meaning of the candles, while lighting the other candles.

One who cannot light and recite simultaneously may finish lighting all the candles and then recite HaNerot Hallalu.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 676:1, 4; Mishneh Berurah 676:8)

Have a great day,
