Glass Hanukkah Menorah with Metal Pomegranate Cutout
Recall the stories from the midrash which tell of the connections between the winter festival of Hanukkah and the autumn harvest festival of Sukkot with this modern glass menorah. It measures 26 by 10 centimeters, and is sure to bring joy to any Judaica collection.
The midrash shows us many connections between the ancient, decreed by God celebrations and sacrifices of Sukkot, and the more recent Maccabean festival of Hanukkah which was given to us as an additional reason to celebrate because Sukkot observance was forbidden by the Syrian-Greeks. This glass Judaica Hanukkah menorah features 9 silver-colored candle-holders for each of the 8 candles representing the 8 nights of Hanukkah and the miracle of the oil, as well as the Shamash (servant or helper candle) in the center of this semi-circular hannukiyah.
Boldly recalling the connections between these autumn and winter festivals, this artisanal glass hanukkiyah features many pomegranates underneath the candle-holders. The semicircular pillar of pomegranates also recalls the traditional shape of the menorahs in the Great Temple, sacked by the Romans. It will uphold the light in the depths of winter for this and many future generations with the proper care.
