What is a Menorah? Menorah is one of the most ancient symbols in Judaism and the most profound one: it is first mentioned in the bible (book of Exodus) when God instructs Moses how to build the Menorah: the base, the branches, the knobs – the description is so detailed that one can imagine how wonderful and spectacular the design was. The Menorah was built and placed in the temple in Jerusalem and later on was taken as bounty after the destruction of the temple – evidence to that was recorded in the Arch of Titus, recording the infamous triumph march through the streets of Rome after the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. Since then the Menorah was set as symbol for old grandeur, for the memory of holy temple in Jerusalem and the freedom of religious practice. As years have past, the Menorah has become one of the main holiday symbols of Hanukkah and later has been picked up as a theme to the official symbol of the state of Israel – The Temple Menorah with two olive branched from each side.
No wonder why Israeli and Jewish Jewelry makers have been using the Menorah theme to decorate their Jewelry designs. Here at Israel-catalog.com, we collected a few works of the famous Israeli Jewelry designer Haim Paz of Idit Jewelry – making simple, yet charming designs of Menorah pendants to carry close to ones heart. The Menorah pendants are mainly from sterling silver (.972 silver) filled with colored enamel.
