This remarkable and gleaming brass menorah is inspired by a central European design that was popular in the beginning of the 20th century. With a simple, classic design, the branches of this elegant Hanukkah Menorah gracefully curve outward from the central column, which is artistically topped with a stunning Star of David. Reflecting the time period’s change in perspective towards Zionistic nationalism, this modest and dignified candelabra in many ways represents the Jewish Community’s typical approach to Judaism of that time, where most Jews felt proud of their heritage, but still tried to appear assimilated with the citizens of their resident countries. In a time where anti-Semitism was on the rise, this marvelous Menorah stood as a light in the darkness, and symbolized hope for a brighter future. With a ninth candle holder (Shamash) that detaches so you can safely light the other candles, this breathtakingly beautiful Hanukkah menorah will make a meaningful addition to your spiritual service to God, or will make a lovely keepsake to display proudly in your home.
This gorgeous replica comes with a certification of authenticity from Jerusalem’s world-famous Israel Museum, as well as a short biography on the historical background of this fantastic item in English and Hebrew for your enjoyment. This item is compatible with standard Hanukkah candles for your convenience.
A Hanukkah blessing pamphlet (24cm x 16.5cm / 9.4" x 6.5") is included with this menorah. It features the prayers recited over the candles, as well as maoz tzur in both Hebrew and English for easy reading.
