Lighting Menorah While Flying (Chanukah)


“11. If one cannot light a regular Menorah, you can light an electric one with a Beracha.”

Hi, if one is on an overnight flight which departs before sunset, how can he fulfill his obligation of lighting the menorah from the discomfort of his airline seat?


A battery powered light.
You can technically light just one light and you can make the beracha. Leave it in for a half hour, if you can.


Does smartphone count?




Just want to confirm, the light could be LED and doesn’t have to be incandescent?
