Hanukkah Candles

This week we get to light both Shabbat Candles and Hanukkah Candles. The custom is to light the Hanukkah candles BEFORE Shabbat Candles in order to avoid desecrating the sabbath.
Since our candles need to burn into the night – the next day according to our Jewish/lunar calendar – we try to use candles or enough oil to last at least 30 minutes after sunset [until approx. 5:07].
