I saw this video when I watched the previous video I posted, andI d forwarded it to my son, but didn't re-post it here because I thought that perhaps only a techie like me would like it. I especially like how pouring a liquid starts the fire to light the shamash.
After checking the Kosher supermarket and the Judaica store around the corner from my house looking for the right kind of wicks to use in one of our oil Hanukah menorahs, I was considering trying to buy some online and laughed when I got this message from Amazon: "Ordering for Christmas? Based on the shipping schedule of GEFEN JUDAICA, choose Standard at checkout for delivery by December 24." ;D So I posted it for amusement on my Facebook page. Luckily, someone I met a few years ago through Limmud Chicago saw the post and commented that those kind of oil light wicks were being sold at a big chain supermarket that has a huge kosher section. It's near my the synagogue where my primary minyan meets and has lots of Orthodox Jewish customers who are identifiable by the kippot on the men and and scarves and long skirts on the women. I also picked up a different kind of wick and wick holder to try out on a different oil hanukiah which we usually use with floating wicks, but those wicks sometimes drown and don't burn down all the oil in the cup.
