Chanukah begins in just one week and for 7 days, Jewish families will be lighting their menorahs and celebrating with delicious foods and festivities. The Menorah is a nine-branched candelabrum that is used during this Jewish holiday. It was originally used in the ancient Tabernacle in the desert and Temple of Jerusalem as a symbol of Judaism since ancient times.
Last night I came across a gorgeous Menorah designed by Jonathan Adler which inspired me to dig a little deeper and look for a few more picks for kids.
The Dachshund Menorah (pictured above) is designed by Jonathan and made in their main workshop in Peru. It was founded through Aid of Artisans, a non-profit organization that connects designers in America with artisans in developing countries to promote fair trade. Price: $120.00 from Project Decor.
Designed by David Gerstein, this Butterfly Menorah has eight spaces for candles as well as a large one for the shamash. The entire piece is decorated with nine swirled stems and intricately designed butterflies. Stunning piece! Price: $248.00 from World of Judaica.
Next up is a Building Block Menorah! This comes with 40 colorful blocks that you arrange any way you choose before inserting the included metal candle cups. Price: $30.00 from the Jewish Museum .
This is definitely a more elegant menorah! Dreidels decorate each and every rod. Not a cheap pick, but a beautiful one! Price: $357 from World Of Judaica.
This adorable Fire Truck Menorah sits on a red, white and black glass base and is decorated by a large Dalmation dog, hydrant and fire hose. Price: $66.00 from World of Judaica.
