Halacha - lighting menorah
Submitted by Mr B  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: One may light before davening Mincha, but there are considerations that make it preferable to daven early. The menorah may not be lit before plag hamincha, about an hour before sunset. Also, if you light early enough to make it to shul for mincha, you must insure there is sufficient oil to burn until at least a half hour past tzeis hakochavim, totally burning approximately 2 and a half hours.
