Happy Hanukah

Happy Hanukah to all from me, a Christian daughter of an adopted Jewish mother.

Too lazy to take a picture of my own Menorah, I found some very nice ones on the internet. I'm partial to those made of metal it seems.



I love this! I could make that.

This Menorah was in DC in 2007. Bet ya won't see anything like that this year. Or next year. Or the year after that. You know what I mean.


I love this whimsical concept of a cactus Menorah.
All images are linked to the location where I found them.

That picture of the candelabrum on the Gate of Titus is an artist's dramatic attempt to illustrate their takedown of the fortified Second Jewish Temple and the accessories they found therein. The menorah of the Temple, however, did NOT have arched branches. They were STRAIGHT. Maimonides and Rashi, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe explains, confirm this. So while it may be quite commonplace, and even attractive, to find its equivalent among so many Jewish houses of worship, it definitely is the wrong structure to copy - if authenticity is what matters to the designer or beneficiary.
