Hamira Sakkanta Mei'usrah
Danger is more severe than a prohibition!
Recent posting from
Sefer Mitzvot Katan, Mitzvah 98 (page 93 in my edition):
...[we do not search for chametz] using the light of
a torch [abukah] because the searcher could become
distracted, and the house might burn down...
Searching for chametz using candles has repeatedly
KILLED JEWS and DESTROYED THEIR HOUSES!!
Use flashlights only to search for chametz!!
Have a hag kosher v'samei'ach and a safe and healthy one, too!
