Q&A: Chanukah Sefirot Correspondence

Q: How do the eight days of Chanukah correspond to the sefirot?

A: The eight days of Chanukah correspond to the sefirot from Binah, Understanding (as in the Chanukah prayer, "Hanerot halalu," 'B'nai binah, yemai shmonah kav'u shir urenanim') until Malchut (Kingdom). Malchut is represented by the last day of Chanukah, called "Zot Chanukah." The word "zot" is a name for Malchut. The eight days of Chanukah correspond to the eight synonyms in the Torah for beauty, from shefer to chen, and their correspondence to the eight candles of the eight nights of Chanukah.
