A multi-wicked flame for havdalah after Shabbat, on Yom Tov


When Yom Tov takes place on Motzaei Shabbat, we blend havdalah of Shabbat with kiddush of Yom Tov. For the berachah on a multi-wicked flame, many people take the Yom Tov candles and incline them toward each other, so that the flames merge in a single, multi-wicked flame. One who does so need not be concerned lest the wax of the candles melt due to the blending of the flames.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:20:30)

Have a great day,
