We are proud to present an exciting line of Artistic Judaica by Yair Emanuel.
This gorgeous interactive menorah features colorful cheerful wildlife scenes reminiscent of Armenian ceramic. Both sides of the menorah are hand-painted with different pictures and it progressively opens up for each day of Hanukkah. On the first day one candle holder is open and the rest of the menorah is closed and so forth for each subsequent day until on the eighth day it is fully open. The design was hand-painted with a brush using acrylic colors and then lacquered. Vivid and harmonious colors characterize the hand-painted wood.
As this piece is covered with layers of lacquer, it is totally functional and waterproof and may be hand-washed.
A free Hanukkah blessings pamphlet is included! Printed in both Hebrew and English for easy reading. Measuring 24 X 16.5 cm (9.4" X 6.5"), this beautiful laminated booklet will help everyone sing along! Includes the traditional blessings said after lighting Hanukkah candles, plus the famous tune Maoz Tzur!
