Menorah 16.5" Kenneset Brass  

This Menorah is a replica of the Menorah that stands outside of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) gates and is the symbol of the modern State of Israel. The original Menorah was a gift to Israel from the British Parliament in 1956 and was designed by British-Jewish sculptor Benno Elkan. This Menorah has symbols that depict thirty important events, idioms and terms from Jewish history and tradition. The central branch presents the essence of the Jewish existence, and every relief on the left side is complimented by a relief on a branch on the right side.

The orginal menorah was created for the Tabernacle as commanded by G-d in Exodus 25:31-40. Then, as it does now, it represents the light of G-d in the world. It lights our path towards rightousness and is a beacon to follow His Word.   

"And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft and his branches, his bowls, his knops and his flowers, shall be of the same. And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of the candlesticks out of the one side and three branches of the candlesticks out of the other side: three bowls made like unto almonds with a knop and a flower in one branch; and three bowls made like unto almonds in the other branch with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come out of the candlesticks. And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds with their knops and their flowers. And there shall be of a same: all of it shall be one beaten work of pure gold. And thou shalt make the seven lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof that they may give light over lamps thereof: and they shall light the lamps thereof that they may give light over against it" (Ex. 25:31-37)
