Shlomo Gendelman asked:

Dear Rabbi Kornfeld: One of two explanations of shitas Beis Shammai in the order of hadlakas neros Chanukkah (from 8 to 1) is "k'neged parei hehag". What may be the relationship between Chanukkah and Hag Sukkos which gives reason to such correlation? It is not clear from Rashi comment - he explains only the numerical similarity and it seems to be not sufficient reason. Chanukkah Sameah! Shlomo Gendelman

The Kollel replies:

See the two approaches we wrote to that question in the Insights to Daf 21 (#6). (If you don't receive the Insights mailing, you can find it on the website at .)
