Blessings over the Hanukkah Candles

.בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱ-לֹהֵנוּ ​​מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו וְצִוָּנוּ לְהַדְלִיק נֵר שֶׁל חֲנֻכָּה

​Barukh attah adonai, eloheinu melekh ha-olam, asher kid-shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzivanu l’hadlik ner shel hannukah.

​Blessed are you Lord, ruler of the universe, whose Mitzvot sanctify us, and who gave us the commandment to light the Hannukah lights.

.בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱ-לֹהֵנוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁעָשָׂה נִסִּים לַאֲבוֹתֵינוּ בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם וּבַזְּמַן הַזֶּה

Barukh attah adonai, eloheinu melekh ha-olam, sheh-asah nissim la-avoteinu ba-yamim ha-heim u-va-z’man hazeh.

Blessed are you, Lord, ruler of the universe, who accomplished miracles for our ancestors in ancient days, and at this time.

If you have not yet lit candles this Hanukkah:

​.בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה' אֱ-לֹהֵנוּ ​​​​​​​מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁהֶחֱיָנוּ וְקִיְּמָנוּ וְהִגִּיעָנוּ לַזְּמַן הַזֶּה

Barukh attah adonai, eloheinu melekh ha-olam, shehechiyanu, vekiyemanu v’higiyanu laz’man hazeh.

Blessed are you, Lord, ruler of the universe, who has kept us alive and sustained us and enabled us to reach this day.​


 

Tips to light like a pro!

  1. Place the candles in the hanukiyah from right to left.
  2. Light candles after saying the blessings.
  3. Only use the shamash to light the candles. The shamash is the candle that is at a different height.
  4. Light candles from left to right (the newest candle first).
  5. Let candles burn out on their own.
