This beautiful silver and gold seven-branched menorah is particularly unique among Judaica candelabras, because it combines art and beauty with timeless tradition. A fitting tribute to the original menorah which was used in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem thousands of years before, this twenty three centimeter tall menorah is decorated with gilt images of the Old City, with its ancient architecture.
This seven-branched candelabra is in the style of the menorah from the Beit HaMikdash, the Temple Jews worshiped at in Jerusalem in ancient times. The original was forged from pure gold, and its lamps were lit with pure olive oil. While the menorah is a key element to the Chanuka story, the Temple menorah’s design differs from the modern-day menorot used during the holiday; Chanuka menorahs have eight branches plus the shamash, to commemorate the miracle, while the original has only seven total.
