Hanukkah Menorah of "Talmudic Era"
Stainless Steel, Sterling Silver
This Menorah was inspired by two lamps I saw in the print version of the Encyclopedia Judaica. (see photos below)
first one was from the Talmudic Era, and the second one was from the 13th
century and found in Avignon, France. I got the idea for the
inscription on my menorah from that lamp. This inscription can be seen
on many menorahs throughout history.
is a quote from Proverbs 6:23, and it translates as "For the
commandment is a lamp and the Torah is light".
