Countdown to Chanukah 1
When a person joins someone else in the Mitzvah of lighting the Chanukah candles, he should contribute more than his share, in order to show his willingness to expand the Mitzvah. (Kaf Hachaim 677:4)
All our efforts on Chanukah should be focused on expanding the light in our lives in one form or another. Take time to consider where and how you can best expand the Divine Light in your home and life, before lighting the candles.
