Israel Museum Hanukkah Menorah Replica - Early 20th Century Central Europe
Size: 18cm x 22.5cm / 7" x 8.8"
This shining brass menorah is based on a central European design from the beginning of the 20th century. It features the classic menorah shape with curved branches leading out from a central branch, with a central Star of David which emphasizes the dramatic shift towards Zionist nationalism at that time, especially in context of the Hanukkah story. The shamash holder is detachable, so you can safely light your candles with it before setting it in the frame.

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.
