This is how chanukiot looked last night, after all 8 + 1 candles were kindled.
And early this morning, this is what I saw in a street in Jerusalem!
A sure sign that today is Zot Chanuka, the 8th (last) day of the holiday.
The man was pouring boiling water from his electric kettle to melt the wax.
No longer needed this year, his Chanuka menorah will be clean and ready, come December 2012.
(Jewish days begin at sunset and end 24 hours later, at sunset; so last night we lit the candles for the last "day" of Chanuka.)
