# 2472 There Is No Place Like Home


Q. I have three options of where to light erev Shabbos Chanuka:
1. by my parents, with whom I live during the week
2. by my Shabbos host where I will be eating the Friday night seuda
3. by my host where I will be sleeping Friday night, as I do not sleep with my parents Friday night since they are mechallelei Shabbos and I sleep in a different house to avoid seeing chillul Shabbos.

Which is best?

If I should light by one (or both) hosts, could I just give them a quarter instead?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that you should light in your parents home which is your principal residence, after plag before Shabbos and then travel to your Shabbos host.
The Rov pointed out that lighting at the parents home, may have a good influence on them.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as revised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit’a
