Chanukah Lighting: Why Light After Dark?

Wednesday, 6 December, 2017 - 12:03 pm

The purpose of lighting Chanukah candles is to bring light where it is dark.

That is why Jewish people light Chanukah candles at night. Even though we light when its dark, we still need to light early enough that people will be around to see them. Why is that important? Because the Chanukah lights need to be seen so they can serve their purpose of reminding Jews of the great miracle G-d made. 

So when is the best time to light? As close as possible, but not earlier than Tzeit Hakochavim (Nightfall).
