Halacha - Chanukah Gifts
Submitted by Yaakov  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Hello. What is the source for giving out Chanukah gelt or gifts? Thank You!
Answer: There doesn't seem to be any source for gifts. Nitei Gavriel quotes a number of Chassidishe Rebbes who gave Chanuka Gelt, but the Minhag is not mentioned in Bnei Yissoschar and seems to be of more recent origin.
