The laws pertaining to the placement and height of the Menorah! Taken from Halachah Highlights By Rabbi Goldstein
- The ideal place to light the menorah is outside your home facing a public thoroughfare on the left side of your door.
- If you have a courtyard in front of your home, light at the entrance to the courtyard.
- If you are lighting inside your home it is preferable to light in the window that faces the public thoroughfare then at the entrance to your home. If such a window is not available then you should light at the entrance to your home on the left side of your door.
The menorah must be placed above 11.9 from the ground up to 38 feet above the ground.
If you live on a floor that is higher then 38 feet above ground you should light in the doorway to your home.
If you lit the menorah in a lower place or a higher place then above, then you have not fulfilled your obligation and must relight the menorah without saying the bracha.
The menorah should be lit in the place it is intended to stay, in order to fulfill your obligation. If you are moving the menorah you should extinguish the lights and relight in the new place without the bracha.
