Official from the Ministry of Energy operating in Beit Shemesh found one poorly placed menorah. The person was using gas meters as the base for his menorah, which could easily lead to catastrophic results.
The inspectors found this earlier in the week, before lighting for the third night of Chanukah. The menorah was atop a gas meter in the closet where the building’s gas meters are housed.
Inspectors notified the person and asks the tzibur to please take care and remain cognizant of surroundings before placing a menorah to avoid needless tragedy.
