Halocho #232 - When do we light on Motzai Shabbat?

In shul one lights the Chanukah Menora after Mincha, except on Motzai Shabbat when one lights during Ma'ariv after Kaddish-תתקבל.
At home on Motzai Shabbat one first makes Havdala and then lights the Menorah.
Source: Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 139:15, 18
Some have the custom of lighting the Menorah before making Havdala, since one already heard Havdala in shul. (רמ"א 581:2)
- Danny
 Tuesday, 2nd day Chanuka, 26 Kislev 5769
Please daven for a complete recovery for Tamar bat Naama - תמר בת נעמה
