Menorah 7" Brass Star of David
Star of David Seven Branch Menorah Seven branch brass Menorah with a Star of David in the center. 7 Inches / 18 cm
Inner cup diameter approximately .5 inches or 1.5 cm.
According to tradition, the Star of David was engraved on the shield of King David. The Star of David appears in the center of the flag of the state of Israel and is the most widely recognized symbol of Modern Judaism.
Much like the Star of David, The Menorah, a seven branch candelabrum, has also come to represent the Jewish people throughout history. It symbolizes the idea that the nation of Israel is to be a light to all nations by setting an example: "Not by Might, nor by Power, but by my Spirit" (Zechariah 4:1-6). The Menorah once graced the Tabernacle as the children of Israel had traveled through the Sinai dessert. It stood as a great monument in both the First and Second Temples. Instructions for the construction of the Menorah can be found in Exodus 25:31-40. Today, the Menorah is the symbol of the modern state of Israel. Menorahs are still fulfilling the same function today as they have in the Biblical era. They can be seen in synagogues and households; bringing enlightenment and enhancing the spiritual connection of mankind with G-d.
**Please note: There are many different types of Menorahs and many different types of candles. However, there are techniques that can help you fit the two.
1. If the diameter of the candle is larger than the Menorah's candle holder then you may try whittling a bit off the base of the candle so it will fit. Please keep in mind that this tip will not work if the candles are significantly larger than the candle holder.
2. If the candle is too small then try heating the base of the candle using a small flame from a “Lighter” or another candle and when the base begins to melt insert it to the menorahs candle holder and press lightly for a few seconds until it sticks.
