Dear Reader,


In the past month PaL attended the Yeshiva and Sem fairs both in Manchester and in London, and as always it is great to welcome new members to the PaL family.  


There are just a few days to go now until PaL puts in an appearance at the Jewish Living Expo at Wembley Stadium on November 3rd. We'll be bringing along some fun 'must have' freebies, and of course giving people the opportunity to sign up to what is arguably the most flexible, innovative and - yes - free Jewish learning programme out there! Tickets for the Expo are already on sale - go to www.jewishlivingexpo.co.uk to book your ticket.


You can find out about events of interest in our Round Up below.  Or you could simply decide to pick up a new Jewish book to study - take a look at the new releases we've highlighted. 



Kind regards


Rivka Graham

Questions from the PaL Mailbag... 

QI live on the 6th floor of a flat building and I remember learning that one should light Chanuka lights on the street level. Given that I doubt I would be permitted to light Chanuka lights in the lobby of my building, what do you suggest I do?  


A: One of the roles of Chanuka candles is to publicise the miracles of the victory against the Greeks and the long-lasting oil of the Temple menorah. Ideally, the Chanuka menorah should be placed outside or in a doorway. But this is not always possible or practical if one lives in a flat many stories from the ground. If it's feasible, put the menorah in an internal doorway so your flat mates, family members or visitors will see it as they walk around. If not, you could put it in the window facing the street if people will notice it. And if that won't work, just light it somewhere safe in the flat and spend some time with it while it is lit - as you will be publicising the miracle to yourself.
