This extravagantly beaded menorah features two colorful elephants with intertwined tusks. In South Africa, where this piece was made, elephant tusks represent strength, eternity, and ancestral spirits. The symbolism of the elephants as the base for the candles creates a strong tie of remembrance, with the continued strength the festival of Hanukkah holds for the Jewish people. The elephants also bring a joyful and playful spirit to your celebration. This menorah is very light, and makes for the perfect gift for bar or bat mitzvahs, conversions, weddings, or for milestones in someone’s Jewish journey. This piece is made for a fair trade organization that provides Judaica from a variety of artists and countries around the world, using ethical business practices.
