  1. If i was watching this correctly it appears that Maran says Hanaeiros halalu after lighting all candles, instead of after the first.

  2. Rav Elyashiv also says “BIZman hazeh.” This only means that all of this is his MINHAG. -Not that everyone must now light the same way as Maran.

  3. Who am I to question the Posek Hador….but I did not hear him pronounce The SHEM as either ADOI, or ADO, as the velt does, but rather ADI, which lchol hadayos is incorrect. The same applies to ELIkaynu.

    Any explanations????
