What is a Menorah?
A menorah (sometimes capitalized) is a branched candelabrum with seven candle-holders. It is displayed in Jewish synagogues. The menorah was the ancient representation of the Hebrews and is one of the oldest symbols of the Jewish people. It symbolizes the burning bush as seen by Moses on mount Sinai. The two most common menorahs have seven and nine candle-holders. The term hanukiah or chanukiah, refers to the nine-candled holder used during Hanukkah. This term was coined in Israel during the 20th century when Hebrew was growing after being mostly dormant as a street language for to light a Menorah?
Chanukah is a Jewish holiday, also known as the Festival of lights. Chanukah is a Hebrew word meaning "dedication". It is also spelled Chanuka, Chanukah/">Hannukah or Hanukkah. The first evening of Chanukah (called Erev Chanukah) starts after the sunset of the 24th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. As in Jewish tradition the calendar date starts at sunset. Blessings over the candles
Typically 3 blessings (Brachahs) are recited during this eight-day festival. On the first night of Chanukah/">Hannukah, Jews recite all three blessings, on all subsequent nights, they recite blessings number 1 and 2.
