Jerusalem Menorot


This menorah reminds us of the miracle of the jug of pure olive oil of Chanukah, where a jug of oil, sufficient for one day, ended up burning for eight days. Sitting here opposite the Temple Mount, you realize that the miracle of Chanukah was “small” in comparison to the hundreds of miracles that took place over hundreds of years, during Bayis Rishon and Bayis Sheini.

    Thank you for this comprehensive description of the Menorah. On behalf the Menorah's the sculptor, my grandfather, Benno Elkan, I appreciate it when something is published that helps educate the public about its meaning. If your readers would like more information about Benno Elkan, I've created an index page with links to other informative articles. It can be found here: https://sites.google.com/site/bennoelkan/.
