Essence of Hanukkah/Chanukah – lighting or placing the lamp? Obligation of a deaf-mute. Blessing says God commanded us to kindle the Hanukkah light, but it’s not in the Torah! Source of God commanding us to follow rabbinic commands. Blessings in cases of uncertainty. Avoiding suspicion and appearance of impropriety during Hanukkah and other situations. Choice between Shabbos and Hanukkah when we lack resources. Reward for those who are meticulous about candlelighting, mezuzah, tzistzis, love of Sages and awe of Sages.
