When do I light the menorah?


One should light the menorah for Chanukah 10 minutes after sunset, with enough fuel for it to burn for an hour. This will ensure that it remains lit for half an hour after the stars emerge.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:101:6)

Have a great Yom Tov,
