A Menorah is the Hebrew word for candelabra, and is the lamp that was used to light the holy temple in Jerusalem. Each night of Hanukkah, the eight candles are lit as a reminder of the miracle that took place in those days. A separate candle known as the shamash is lit to light the other candles.
There’s a story about a woman who once owned a magnificent, ancient silver Menorah that had been passed down from generation to generation in her family. During the Jewish pogroms of the early 20th Century in Lviv, Ukraine, her beloved Menorah was saved from destruction when it was tied in a sack and lowered into a well by a watchman. A mark of its survival, and the miracle that it symbolized, was left behind in the form of a dent in the silver base.silver kiddush cup
