An elegant and feminine menorah which combines two of Israel’s most famous symbols of religious and national pride, this Star of David anodized aluminum Hanukkah menorah is an excellent gift on the occasion of a Jewish girl’s Bat Mitzvah (religious coming of age ceremony). Each interconnected candle holder is formed of a deep pink Jewish star, along with a raised “shammash” holder for the candle that is used to light the rest. This combination of Judaica and Israeli symbolism forms a wonderful work of art for use on the Festival of Lights.
Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish holiday celebrated during the Hebrew month Kislev, typically towards the end of the regular calendar year. It commemorates the miraculous victory of the Maccabees against the religious subjugation of the invading Assyrians, who attempted to conquer the Holy Land during the Second Temple era. The word Hanukkah literally means “dedication.” Following this victory, the Temple and all its relics, including the menorah, were repaired and rededicated with Divine help.
