The original menorah was created by Moses for the tabernacle during the Israelites’ sojuorn through the desert and was lit by Aaron the Priest, Moses’s brother. When King Solomon built the Holy Temple, he too instructed artisans to create a menorah which was lit by the High Priest of the generation. As instructed by God, the menorahs were made of pure gold, an emphasis that all vessels used to serve God should be whole and refined. Today, people all over the world light a very special menorah, called a Chanukiah (kha-nu-kee-ah), during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. The message of the holiday is that in a world of darkness, it just takes one small light to make everything seem brighter.
