Chanukah – What are the differences between Ashkenazim and Sephardim?

Question:

Ha Rav, in reference to the holiday of Chanukah – What are the differences between Ashkenazim and Sephardim? May I ask that your sources be in English, please.

Answer:

Here are some of the differences between the Sefardim Ashkenazim regarding Chanukah.

The Ashkenazim generally light a separate menorah for each man, whereas the Sefardim only light one menorah per family. (O:CH 671-2).

Sefardim say “להדליק נר חנוכה”, whereas Ashkenazim say  “להדליק נר של חנוכה” (O:CH 676-1) .
