  • This is an ignorant question, but I thought you were supposed to light the ones to the right first? Or is it that the ones facing the window must be on the right from the outside. Or something. Thanks

  • you place the candles from right to left, but light them from left to right – newest candle first. In the photo, the viewer is facing the menorah and I am behind it… but good eye!

  • I think that the direction you light depends whether you are sepharadi or ashkenazi. You throw a latke up in the air… greasy side up and its left to right….

  • less frightening pic than the first… i like your style, dude. (mind if i steal it? …but only starting with night 3, natch)
