Lighting the Menorah after Shabbat


On Motzaei Shabbat (Saturday night) we light the Menorah at home only after we make Havdalah.

In the synagogue we light the Menorah before Havdalah. We will already have recited a form of Havdalah in the Maariv prayer, and we want to make sure to light the Menorah before people leave.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 679)

Have a great day,
