Artist Marit Meisler's unusual choice of cement creates a functional, contemporary menorah out of a common building material. It is made of nine separate individual movable pieces that can be arranged in countless configurations, allowing versatility, interaction and imagination to take part in the ceremonial use. The mirror finish stainless steel for the Hanukkah candle holders stands as contrast to the warm textural quality of the concrete.
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.
