About This Painting
The tradition of lighting the menorah began in the First Temple in Jerusalem. Lighting the menorah is still practiced today in Jewish households as part of Chanukah. One candle is lit on each night of Hanukkah, an act that signifies a recommitment to G-d and the Jewish faith. During the rule of the Seleucids, the people of Israel were forced to replace their faith in G-d with the culture of their rulers.
However, a small group of Jews held steadfast to their beliefs. With just one cruse of olive oil, they were miraculously able to light the menorah for eight days, and the tradition of Chanukah was born. The menorah’s light reminds us of G-d’s guidance and love in even the darkest of times. The Chanukah menorah is often placed in front of a window facing the street to fill the darkness with the light of G-d. If you are looking more light and warmth in your home, this Jewish painting of the Menorah will spread this message throughout your living space.
