Halacha - Straight/Curved Menorah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: A round menora is not permitted because from a distance the flames would all seem to be one large fire similar to a torch, and a multi-wicked fire is not valid for Chanuka lights. However, if the candles are on the same horizontal plane and only a slight curve as you describe, it is acceptable since the important consideration is seeing the separate flames which should not be compromised. However it is preferable that there should be a space of a finger's width between each flame to insure they can be distinguished individually.
