Placement of the Menorah


Ideally, the menorah should be placed outside the house, where everyone will be able to see it. However, one who cannot do so due to legitimate fear of violence or theft may place it inside - ideally where it will be visible from the street, but at least where other household members will see it.

Even if the Menorah is lit inside the house, one of the Menorot to be lit should be positioned near the front door, in order to surround an entering person with the mitzvot of Mezuzah and Menorah.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 671:5, 7)

Have a great day,
