Beloved Mitzva

Mori V'Rabi Harav Hagaon Reb Shlomo Miller shlita said:

"Instead of arranging the timing of הדלקת נרות
so it won't interfere with your travels, you should 
arrange the timing of your travels so it won't 
interfere with the הדלקת נרות.

Lighting Ner Chanukah is the only Mitzvah that the 
Rambam writes (Hl. Chanukah 4:12) מצוה חביבה היא עד מאד  
(most beloved Mitzvah) 

The Rambam also writes והדלקת נרות - כקריאת מגילה 
Perhaps the Rambam meant that  the same
way קריאת מגילה is דוחה all Mitzvos even דאורייתא
(except Meis Mitzvah) so too הדלקת נרות is דוחה all
Being it is such a great Mitzvah one should try to
avoid traveling if it will interfere with this beloved and

important Mitzvah."
