How a guest lights the menorah


One who is an overnight guest in someone else's home has two options:

1. Pay for some of the fuel for the host's Menorah, or

2. Light his own Menorah there.

The latter option is usually considered more ideal.

If the guest stays in a separate wing of the home, with its own entrance to the street, then the guest must light his own Menorah.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 677:1)

Have a great day,
