The designer Adam D. Tihany has designed a modern and stylish collection of Judaica, produced by the skillful hands of Christofle Silver for The Jewish Museum. The menorah is a ceremonial lamp used during the eight days of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. The asymmetrical design of Tihany’s menorah echoes the form of the oil lamps that illuminated the ancient Temple in Jerusalem. Tihany’s lamp holds eight candles, one for each day of the holiday, plus a ninth candle, the Shamash, which is used to light the others. The contemporary design of this menorah makes it a decorative object that can stand on its own throughout the year. Made in France.
This menorah is included in Design Edition JM, a curated selection of modern and contemporary Jewish ritual objects by extraordinary designers commissioned and collected by The Jewish Museum.
