Judaism's Oldest Symbol which once stood in the Holy Temple of Jerusalem has been a source of fascination and illumination for Jews, Samaritans, Evangelistic and Devout Christians, Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews, and Freemasons for three millennia.
Very elegant large menorah with an octagonal base. Four choices of metal plating over brass foundation.
In 2009 - the ruins of the most ancient synagogue - were exposed in Magdala, the place of birth Maria Magdalena, inside the ruins was a rectangular stone which has on its' surface a big carving of the seven-branched Menorah. Those carvings of the same shape as Menorah were found in Archeological sites along the years, related to the first century and on - after the fall of the second temple.
Since at those times there was no electricity, the Menorah provided light every day from sunset to dawn. Using fresh pure olive oil.
In Christianity, it is mentioned in the book of revelation - like the lamp with the seven branches to symbolize the 7 churches of Asia.
Also representing the 7 classical planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars Jupiter, and Saturn.
The Menorah symbolizes universal enlightenment.
The Menorah is also associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
In the Talmud, the Menorah is related to the miracle of light. During the war with the Greeks, the little pure oil that was left enough for 1 day - lit the menorah for whole 8 days." (you can see this description on the menorahs entrance page I copied it , its general that you can use to describe menorahs)
