Very Public Chanukah Menorah Lighting

One of the things I enjoy about my job, working at Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin is the public Chanukiya lighting on Chanukah.  The mitzvah is to light your Chanukah menorah at the entrance of your home. It's supposed to be in a very public place to publicize the miracles G-d did and always does for us.

Rami Levy always sets up a giant Chanukiya at the entrance of the stores, the discount supermarket and Yafiz. I was working last night, and a short while after they had announced Arvit, Ma'ariv Evening Prayers, there was an announcement inviting people to come to the entrance of the store for candle-lighting.

Some of the managerial staff then came out to light the Chanukiya, and people gathered around listening and taking pictures.
