Jerusalem based artist Yair Emanuel is famous for his original, innovative and often breathtaking pieces of art and Judaica, and this Hanukkah menorah is no exception. During the eight days of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah (also spelled Hanukka, and pronounced “Chanukkah” in Hebrew), candles are lit in all Jewish homes ,in remembrance of the miracle of Hanukkah, with the number of candles corresponding to the number of the day in the holiday.

 

It is customary to beautify this tradition by placing the candles in gorgeous, unique candleholders, named Hanukkiot in Hebrew, and commonly called Menorahs, in reference to the Menorah, one of the utensils used in the Jewish temple. This menorah is formed by nine wooden panels connected by hinges, so that the panels can either stand side by side, form an open-accordion-like shape, or anything in between.  Each panel is hand-painted with spectacular scenes, and the paintings are arranged to offer different scenes and gorgeous effects of light and color when the panels are placed in different positions. Words really cannot do justice to the elaborate design and stunning portraits, the menorah simply speaks for itself.

 

This fabulous menorah comes with three design options:

1. Jerusalem - The Holy City is brought to life to the fantastic images of Jerusalem. Ancient vistas combine with the western wall to create a magnificent portrayal of the city.

2. Oriental – This menorah features a dazzling oriental design, portraying gazelles, peacocks, and other birds in blooming natural surroundings.

3. The Seven Species of the Land of Israel – The menorah’s paintings feature elaborate images based of the motif of the Seven Species of the Land of Israel – wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranate, olive and date.

Each panel has a small hole at the top – to allow for the placing of a candle. The extra, ninth hole is for the “shamash” – the extra candle which is used to light the others and is also displayed.

 

This state-of-the-art menorah measures 7.5" X 6.9" X 1.8" when closed, and 15.8" X 6.9" X 1.8" when completely open.

To ensure complete practicality, each hole contains a brass insert, so that the melting wax does not damage the wood. Additionally, after painting, each panel is coated with three layers of lacquer, thus making the menorah waterproof and enabling hand-cleaning.

This menorah is the perfect gift for any lover of Judaica art, or for any bar mitzvah boy or bat mitzvah girl. To guarantee a thrill for the lucky recipient, hurry up and order today.
