Adaptation from Richard Meier Hanukkah Lamp, 1985.
 
Richard Meier writes of his Hanukkah Lamp design: “…I was trying to express the collective memory of the Jewish people. Each candleholder of the lamp is an abstracted representation of an architectural style from significant moments of persecution in the history of Jews.”
 
Meier is an internationally known, award-winning architect celebrated for his designs of such museums as: The Getty Center in Los Angeles, the High Museum in Atlanta and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Spain.  Meier credits such historic architects as Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Meis van der Rohe, as well as Bramante and Bernini, as his influences. 

The YORK mezuzah, adapted from the fourth tower, represents expulsion from England in the year 1290.  It is made in the USA.
 
This mezuzah 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.
