This pewter menorah by Quest Gifts is crafted in the traditional shape, yet decorated in a highly contemporary style. The piece is hand-painted with enamel and adorned with Austrian crystals. The paint used on this item has been hand-mixed, so there may be some variations in color tone. A work from the Quest Gifts collection will be a welcome addition to any home for Hanukkah.
The Hanukkah Menorah -- or ''Hanukiah'' -- is a beautiful eight-branched candelabra with a ninth branch, the Shamash, to serve as the ''helper'' candle. The miracle of Hanukkah is represented by each of the eight Menorah candles, which symbolize the eight nights of Hanukkah. Lighting the Menorah for the Jewish ''Festival of Lights'' is a celebration of Jewish History, and also serves as a reminder of the seven-branched Temple Menorah, which is one of the oldest symbols of Jewish faith and the nation of Israel. In Hebrew the word ''Hanukkah'' means ''dedication.'' Menorah lighting from the Quest Gifts collection of Judaica ritual items is a tradition to be enjoyed by many families for the Jewish Holidays.
