Location of the menorah in the synagogue


The Menorah is lit in the synagogue each evening, between Minchah (afternoon prayers) and Maariv (evening prayers), to publicize the miracles of Chanukah. It should be placed along the south wall of the synagogue, parallel to the Menorah of the Beit haMikdash [Temple] which was also placed along the south wall.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 671:7)

Have a great day,
