Series: Contemporary Halacha
Special Chanukah Shiur - The White Shul - How long must the candles burn nowadays? Is 30 minutes enough? Should we light with oil or wax? Is the mitzvah patterned off the Menorah in the Beis Hamikdash? How were they able to light the menorah with "miraculous oil" - it isn't real oil? Are things created miraculously considered real? Can we count a "golem" for a minyan? Does an animal created with the sefer yetirah require shechitah?!
