Hanukkah candles

NLE Thinking Gemara Series – already a popular teaching tool in the hands of Outreach rabbis and school teachers everywhere – is proud to announce a brand new set of source materials exploring the history and depth of the custom to light increasing candles on each night of Chanukah.

The shiur focuses on the famous Gemara that details the three tiers of Chanukah candle lighting, and also includes a conceptual analysis of why there are three tiers, what rests behind the disagreement of Beis Shammai and Beis Hillel, and the underlying reason for differences in Ashkenazic and Sephardic practice.  It includes sources from the Talmud, the Rishonim, and the Acharonim – all laid out in an easy fashion perfect for class preparation, source sheet production, and presentation.
