Q. How much is the amount of money to be contributed when one is yotze menorah lighting by joining his host?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that the minimum amount would be a nickel which is the smallest coin that can be still used in Canada. It may be different in the United States where a penny is still viable currency.
However, the Rov stressed that one should treat his mitzva contribution with the expected dignity and honor.
