#1 is for Hanukkah ..... it starts this Wednesday!!!
This stunning pewter menorah is designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier. The menorah is a reproduction of the "Meier Lamp," which was originally commissioned by The Israel Museum in 1985 and is a part of the permanent collection of The Jewish Museum in New York City. The limited edition menorahs and a series of exclusive mezuzahs are available at The Jewish Museum Gift Shop.
"In the design of the Hanukkah Menorah I was trying to express the collective memory of the Jewish people. Each candleholder is an abstracted representation of an architectural style from significant moments of persecution in the history of the Jews. The first being the expulsion of the Jews from Egypt and the last symbolizing the towers of the concentration camps in Germany. These are not intended as literal representations if specific events but rather as reminders of the common past and struggles that Jewish people have suffered and their resilience and strength that is so wonderfully captured in the Hanukkah story."
