The first time I traveled to Rome was in 1982. I was shocked, shocked, I tell you, when I went into a few of the great churches in Rome to see lightbulbs on the very tall candlesticks in churches and they must have been the highest power possible as I was nearly blinded by them.
This is Santa Croce in Rome, somewhat modern by Roman standards as it was begun in 1913.
Lightbulbs on tall candlesticks…Kosher or not kosher, I ask you answer and, also, Hanukkah or Chanukah? These are pressing questions!
