Is there a Halachah, that the lighting device (a lighter or another candle or a match) should be lit before the Brochos and the flame must be present and through Brochos, or the Brochos can be made with no fire and the device lit after the last Brocho?

Is there a difference between Chanukkah and lighting Shabbos candles?

  • I don't know, hence the question. I was used to lit from another candle but once I got a lighter I wondered if it needs to be lit all the time. – Al Berko Dec 2 at 21:07
