Description

Menorah – the golden seven-candle lamp that was used during the ritual service in the Jerusalem Temple (the word “menorah” means “lamp” in Hebrew). The menorah consisted of a central lamp and six symmetrical “branches” extending from it: three on one side and three on the other.

The first golden menorah was created during the 40 year-long wanderings of the Jewish people in the desert, to fulfill the order of the Almighty (Exodus 25:9). After the Jewish conquest of the Land of Israel and the construction of the Temple in Jerusalem by King Solomon, the Menorah was placed installed in the inner chambers of the Temple, in front of the entrance to the Holy of Holies.  For centuries, the Menorah served as one of the main symbols of Judaism. When establishing the State of Israel, the image of the seven-pointed lamp was placed on the national emblem.

This silver-plated menorah is decorated with the sacred priestly breastplate “Hoshen” worn by the High Priest of the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus. The twelve stones on the Hoshen, the precious Priestly Breastplate that was worn by the High Priest in Jerusalem Temple stand for the twelve tribes of Israel:

  1. Ruby (Red) stands for the tribe Reuben;
  2. Jade (Green) stands for the tribe Shimon;
  3. Agate (Red, White, and Black Striped) stands for the tribe of Levi;
  4. Carbuncle (Bluish-Green) stands for the tribe of Judah;
  5. Lapis-Lazuli (Blue) stands for the tribe of Issachar;
  6. Quartz Crystal (Clear) stands for the tribe of Zebulun;
  7. Turquoise (Greenish Blue) stands for the tribe of Dan;
  8. Amethyst (Purple) stands for the tribe of Naftali;
  9. Agate (Grey) stands for the tribe of Gad;
  10. Aquamarine (Light Blue) stands for the tribe of Asher;
  11. Onyx (Black) stands for the tribe of Joseph, divided in itself to two tribes of the sons of Joseph: Ephraim and Menashe;
  12. Opal (A Stone Possessing All the Colors) stands for the tribe of Benjamin.
