The answers to Do I need a menorah? say that according to some I need to use a chanukia of some sort to hold the lights. Does it need to be the same one for all eight days, or can one use different chanukiot on different nights of the festival?

    @AvrohomYitzchok If this question is turned into whether a chanukiya is required at all, it becomes at least a partial duplicate: that question is already answered on the site

  • Shlomo, I've edited further to make this question not a duplicate of the one Rish linked to. I think this is still pretty close to what you intended to ask all along. If not, please feel free to edit further. Dec 25, 2016 at 17:06

See Shulchan Aruch 673:3 who is very clear that you can use different Menorahs each night (he says that if you are lighting with earthenware you have to use new ones each night).

  • The question was "if a hannukiah is needed". Does the Shulhan Arukh hold that one needs one?
