MENORAHS AT FAIRS & SQUARES ETC.

MENORAHS AT FAIRS & SQUARES ETC.




According to the 1) Minchas Yitzchok, 2) R Y. S. Elyashiv
3) R. S.Z. Auerbach,4) Klausenburg Rebbe 5) R.S. Wosner,
6) R.N. Karelitz zt"l &
להבדיל בין חיים לחיים  (7 R. Ch. Kanievski Shlita,

Lighting a Chanukah Menorah in front of the City Hall, Parliament

buildings, top of cars or other

public places etc.

has nothing to do with the Mitzvah of פירסומי ניסא

Chazal instituted פירסומי ניסא,  when, where, and how.
They never said to advertise on the jumbotron at the
super bowl. So too have they never said to place Menoras
at Town squares, street corners, etc.

 
Those who do light there with a ברכה are עובר on  ברכה לבטלה

*Probably, according to the above Poskim, there is no need to
honor the Goyishe celebrity with the lighting of the Shamash. You
can even have them light all of the eight candles.

Having the Goy make the ברכה לבטלה might be problematic
if it falls under ברכת השם, one of the 7 מצות בני נח.
