I really enjoyed the service and level of interaction with Israel Catalog.com. The service was excellent the site had all the info I looked for and if I had any questions about the products Avi, an excellent Customer Service Rep was there to answer my questions. Not only will I be shopping again from Israel Catalog.com. I will be making sure that my family and friends looking for similar products shop there as well. Once you find an organization with such a good customer service, you have to support them to show the rest of the business the kind of service and commitment shoppers need. I purchase two “Sterling Silver Block Letters, Hebrew Name Necklaces and three more items” and I loved them. My granddaughter was delighted and feels special that her B-day gift came all the way from Israel. Thank you, Israel Catalog.com
Golden Jerusalem Lions Hanukkah Menorah
Dan Shamir’s Golden Jerusalem Lions Menorah highlights his strength as an artist in uniquely capturing the essence of the Holy City of Jerusalem. This expertly crafted Menorah shows the strength and beauty of Jerusalem through colorful hand painted images of lions and the Holy Temple.
Modern types of Menorahs such as the Golden Jerusalem Lions Menorahs have 9 holes where the 8 Hanukkah candles and the 9th candle known as the shamash are held. The Shamash is used to light the other candles each night of the Jewish holiday. The lighting of the Hanukkah menorah is considered a good deed or a mitzvah, as it is a central component to the retelling of the story of Hanukkah and the celebration of miracles.
Although a relatively young artist, Israeli Dan Shamir has created a masterpiece in this Golden Jerusalem Lions Menorah. Through using a method known as laser cutting in which a laser beam is used to accurately and precisely cut thin metal, Shamir has fashioned a one-of-a-kind Menorah. This Menorah is in the shape of an arch, which is reminiscent of the architecture of ancient Jerusalem in which arches were used commonly used in construction of walls and buildings. Using bright, bold colors such as orange, green, and different shades of blue, Shamir has depicted the images of two, large, strong lions on either side of the Holy Temple of Jerusalem. This imagery is significant, as the symbol of Jerusalem is the Golden Lions, which represent the strength of a city that has survived millennia.
The Golden Lions Menorah is a perfect Judaica gift for any special person, who is looking to remember the strength and beauty of Jerusalem on the holiday of Hanukkah.
