Hanukkah candle blessings are significant for reminding people of their duty to transform the darkness of the world into light. The candles are admired during Hanukkah and are placed in a public setting so everyone can share in the blessings. As the candles burn, individuals call out the darkness existing among ourselves. They remind themselves that we all have a divine spark within us. And it is our duty to ensure it prevails and spreads the light across the world.
