Item description for In the Light of the Menorah: Story of a Symbol by Israel From The Collection of The Israel Museum...
The menorah, the seven-branched candelabrum, is the most enduring symbol of Judaism, whose origin goes back to the days of the Children of Israel's wandering through the desert. More than any other Jewish symbol, the menorah represents devotion and tradition, passed down from one generation to the next since the time of Moses. Yet, despite the detailed description of the menorah in the Bible, It is impossible to get a clear picture of the menorah's form just from the biblical text. In the Light of the Menorah, a beautiful book filled with menorah's from around the world, brings this popular Jewish symbol to life, as it tells a fascinating history in words and photographs from the earliest days of the Israelites to the time of the Second Temple, to the menorah's ties with modern Jewish art and the State of Israel.
