A stunningly elaborate and incredibly unique take on not one, but two of the most timeless symbols of the Jewish religion, nation, and culture, this Judaica menorah for use on Hanukkah is made entirely of anodized aluminum Stars of David. Eight blue candle holders, each in the shape of the Magen David, blend seamlessly together like puzzle pieces. The shamash is a raised white star of the same shape. This Hanukkah menorah is the perfect Chanuka present for artists, collectors, and anyone who loves a unique gift that combines art, culture, and religious identity in a beautiful way.
The Jewish holiday of Chanukah commemorates a great miracle that happened several thousand years ago in the Holy Land of Israel. Following a war with the invading Assyrian nation, the Jewish people sought to restore the Second Beit HaMikdash to its former glory, for it had been defiled by the invaders during their occupation. However, only a small amount of pure oil remained that was suitable for lighting the Temple’s menorah - barely enough to last a day. However, a miracle happened and the oil lasted eight days. Today, that miracle is still celebrated with this eight-day-long holiday.
