Menorah Getting Blown Out

The Daily Halacha Moment - Blown Out Menorah 🕎

‎״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן

‎העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


Does one need to re light the menorah if it got blown out?


If one lit properly, his requirement is fulfilled without having to wait thirty minutes. Therefore, if the flame went out before thirty minutes have passed, he is no longer responsible, and is not required to light again. [1] However, it is praiseworthy for one to relight the flame if he can, without a berachah.[2] Nonetheless, if one lit in a windy location and the lights went out, the lighting in invalid, and one is required to relight without a berachah in a location without wind. [3]
