"The Menorah back in times of the temple is a seven-branched lampstand used in the temple of Jerusalem.
In order to light the branches of the menorah, the purest olive oil was used. The Menorah is the symbol of the Israeli religion in ancient times and modern times.
In Exodus 25:31-40 - God instructs Moses how to form the Menorah.
