How do we set up and light the chanukiah? We place the first candle in the chanukiah on the right side. On the second night we once again start with a candle on the right side and then we add one next to it. On the third night we add another - and so on until the eighth night. Now here's the tricky bit. But when we light the candles we light the last one to be put in first! We keep lighting from left to right until all the candles are lit.
We light the shamash and hold it up while singing the first blessing. While singing the other blessings we light the candles one at at time moving left to right.
After all the candles are lit we sing 'Maoz Tzur'.
