We need Chanukah menorahs to celebrate the festival of lights.
Chanukah is celebrated every year with lights and gifts to commemorate the victory of the Maccabees‚ the rededication of the Temple‚ and the miracle of the oil that burned eight days. During the 8 day Festival of Lights‚ our Chanukah Menorahs will fill your home with joy!
Every Day we light one more light in our Chanukah Menorah than recite the Maoz Zur and we sing Chanukah songs that tell us stories about the origin of the festival of lights.
One of these verses is Hanerot Halalu‚ an ancient song mentioned in the Talmud that reminds us of the sacred nature of the Hanukkah lights that are lit to commemorate the Maccabien victory. The song reminds us that the purpose of the Chanukah lights is to publicize the miracle‚ and thus it is forbidden to use the lights in any other way.
There are some rules and details that determine the difference between what counts as a Kosher Chanukiyah that should be remembered; Lights kindled on Chanukah Menorah may have all kinds of shapes and designs and need not take the classical Temple Menorah form yet the eight wicks or candles should appear to be in a straight line neither protruding nor receding. At a glance the onlooker should be able to tell which night of Chanukah it is by noting the number of flames. It is important that each flame should be far enough from the other that the flames do not blend together and care should be taken that the flames are not close enough to cause neighboring candles to burn faster.
Choosing a Chanukah Menorah is an important choice because we'd like it to stay in the family for many years to come. Chanukah Menorahs or Chanukiot as they are called in Israel come in many designs and are made of all kinds of materials: Metal Chanukah lamps‚ Glass Chanukah Menorahs‚ ceramic Chanokiot‚ and even hand painted wooden Chanukah Menoras.
