During the Shabbat of Chanukah, which is lit first - the Menorah or the Shabbat candles?
And then on Saturday night, which do we do first - the Menorah or the Havdalah service?
What to Use for Besamim (Spices)?-
Whenever I go to a religious home for havdalah, I notice that they use whole cloves for the blessing on the spices (besamim). Is there some special significance to this, or can any spice be used?
Women Making Havdalah-
I am a single woman and I usually try to hear Havdallah on Saturday night at the synagogue. But sometimes I don’t feel like going out. So when I say Havdallah by myself, should I say all the blessings as usual?
