Lighting the Way to Freedom, by Yaniv Ben Or, is an outstanding book in which hundreds of Hanukah Menorahs are displayed in a magnificent design. The Menorahs in this special book were crafted by Jewish artists in Israel in the years before and after Israel\'s declaration of independence, in 1948 (from the late 1920s until the early 1970s). The 268 pages of this unique book hold within them much more than mere pictures of Menorahs. This beautifully illustrated book offers an inspiring walkthrough the development of Jewish art throughout the years surrounding the foundation of the state of Israel.


Menorahs are a significant part of Judaica. Starting in early days, the original Menorah was created for the Tabernacle; it was made of solid gold, with beautiful decorations, shaped as flowers and knobs, on it. It had seven branches and was lit by the Great Priest with the purest olive oil. Nowadays the Seven Branched Menorah is the official symbol of the state of Israel.


The Menorah symbolizes Jewish faith and the light that the Jewish nation inflicts on all other nations. This is why, from all other Jewish holidays, Chanukah is when we light the Menorah to commemorate the victory of Jewish spirit over the evil worldly powers.


Lighting the Way to Freedom, of Gefen Publishers, is one of the best books you can find whether you are looking for Chanuka gifts or simply Jewish gifts for all year round.
