Gold Menorah


ועשית מנורת זהב טהור מקשה תיעשה המנורה.." שמות כה 31"

The Gold Menorah was one of the most important symbols in the Temple. The High Priest lit the Gold Menorah every day with pure olive oil. It was called 'the perpetual lamp'. The Menorah is the official symbol of the state of Israel.

Menorah A menorah is a branched candelabrum with seven candle-holders. It is displayed in Jewish synagogues. The menorah is one of the oldest symbols of the Jewish people. It symbolises the burning bush as seen by Moses on Mount Sinai.

The original design for the seven-candle menorah is in the Torah. According to Maimonides the menorah's branches were straight, not rounded as is often depicted. The menorah originally burned olive oil, not candles. The menorah was used in rituals in the tabernacle and later the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Jewish tradition as recorded in the Talmud describes that when the Maccabees were rededicating the Temple, they only found enough oil to light the menorah for one day. A miracle occurred and the oil lasted for eight days.
