Designer Menorah Buying Guide
More popular than dreidels or latkes or even donuts, the Hanukkah menorah is the centerpiece of our Hanukkah celebrations. The nine-branched candelabra (or hanukkiah in Hebrew) is lit with a growing number of candles on each of the holiday's eight nights, creating a literal, glowing Festival of Lights. The menorah is one of the most iconic pieces of Judaica and is a symbol of Judaism. Such a prominent piece should be a work of art that you can be proud of and excited to use year after year. Israeli artists do it best, and have created the most beautiful menorahs you have ever seen.
Modern and Traditional Menorahs
Choosing the perfect Hanukkah menorah starts off with what your taste is. Maybe you want a traditional timeless piece, similar to what your grandparents have. Maybe you want something that will stand out with a modern twist. Its also possible you're a jet setter and need something for on the go. No matter who you are or what your taste is, you won't be disappointed.
Oil or Hanukkah Candles?
In modern times, long thin multicolored Hanukkah candles have become popular, allowing everyone to create colorful patterns to light up the night with, while offering a safe way for kids to join in the candle-lighting ceremony. However the even older tradition is to light the menorah with olive oil, just like they did in Temple times. The miracle of Hanukkah is that a small jug pure, virgin olive oil was found in the Temple after it had been ransacked, and that it lasted for 8 full days. We offer colorful candles and pure olive oil cups so no matter how you choose to light your candle, you'll always be set!
Menorah Specialist Suppliers
Not only do we world with the world's best Judaica artists, we also have taken a step back in time by including menorahs replicas from Israel's biggest cultural institution, the Israel Museum. The Israel Museum has made these adaptations and replicas from some of their historical pieces in their archives, originating from multiple places around the world. An Israel Museum menorah will be a special and unique addition to your Hanukkah celebration. We also absolutely love these phenomenal menorahs that were made from recovered remnants of Kassam rockets that were fired into Israel. These Kassam menorahs are the perfect example of Hanukkah's core message- turning darkness into light. Proceeds from the rocket menorahs go towards building bomb shelters in cities in southern Israel that are targeted by Gaza terrorists.
