Moving the Hanukkiah

Updated: Feb 7

Question:

May I light the hanukkiah indoors and then move it in front of the entrance to my home?


Answer:

No, one may not do so. One should light the hanukkiah in the same location as one will leave it. As the gemara says in Masecheth Shabbath, Amud 23A: "Hadlakah Oseh Mitzvah"

See Rambam, Hilchoth Channukah, Perek 4, Halacha 9
