    What should we be extra careful about, on Chanuka? I’ve heard that Chanuka is a very special time and so we should daven etc…

    Anything extra special to do on Chanuka?

    Also, has anyone heard of looking directly at the flames for the full half hour and what positive effect it has?

    It purifies your neshoma.

    We should be careful about what what we see and do. Most people gather round the children and watch a movie or two on break. The chanukah war was against the greeks whom didn’t want us dead-they wanted us secular.

    Davka on this holiday we should try to prove that we want to be on the Jewish side and be spiritual.

    Just enjoy the family, learn, and be happy.

    “What should we be extra careful about, on Chanuka?”

    To keep kids away from the MEnora when li, and not to leave them unattended

    ” I’ve heard that Chanuka is a very special time and so we should daven etc…”

    Of course!

    “Anything extra special to do on Chanuka?”

    Yes! light the menora every day and say hallel, add al hanisim to bentching and davening.

    Someone shared these Chanukah Segulos with me, and I thought in light of your post, that it was appropriate to share them, in turn, with you:

    It is also related that the very first half hour of when the Hanukkah candles burn is considered an especially auspicious time for prayer the angels are believed to sit above the candles and take the prayers directly up to Heaven

    So, all in all, it couldn’t hurt, and it can only help, if nothing more than to remind us that Hashem makes nissim v’niflaos for us all the time, and we should appreciate them all.

    be extra careful to treat chanuka with respect. i.e. dont just light the menorah & forget about it, watch it together with your children & sing with them chanuka songs so you bring the chanukah air & kedusha into your home.

    go to a chanuka mesiba, lekovod the yom tov & not for the music & food etc…

    The Kedushas Levi says that each night of chanuka is mesugal for different things to daven for.

    1 st night -not to be lonely or depressed.

    2nd night- shidduchim, shalom bayis

    3rd night- good children,happy children, healthy

    (Chasam Sofer says when u cry in front of the candles u can be sure your tefilos are answered)

    4th night- 4 imahos

    To be a normal woman, in my 4 walls, of true essence

    5th night – chamisha chumshei torah

    Daven your husband should be a talmid chacham children.

    By the 5th night more of the menorah is lit up can daven for more light in your life, for a revelation

    6th night – simcha

    You can have everything and still be sad, so opportunity to daven for simcha.

    7th night -happy shabbos

    Zmiros ,divrei torah by your seuda. Shabbos is source of all bracha.

    8th nignt-mesugal for barren women

    8 is above nature, powerful day to daven.

    Kedushas Levi says if you are planning to start something new ,if you start on chanuka it will be blessed.

    A freilichen chanuka
