I seem to recall a halacha stating that the Chanukah menorah should not be lit in the same place as the Shabbos candles are lit. Is this indeed the halacha, and can someone point me to somewhere where this is written? Thanks.
A lot of the achronim stress that you should light chanukkah candles before shabbas candles to avoid the light from the shabbas candles, which implies that they are being lit in the same place. But I could see the jump from that to deliberately lighting them apart to avoid the issue. Also if you're machmir about lighting the chanukkah candles somewhere particular, e.g. outside, next to the door, etc., I assume that puts them away from your shabbas candles.
