• A Modern Menorah: 5 Styles

    0 comments / Posted by kristin spear



    When it comes to holidays and decorating everyone has a different approach. Some people have bins of holiday decor that they swap out with their current everyday decorating pieces.  Others, like us, pull out the necessities and go for a 'less is more' approach. We haven't decided if that's an aesthetic decision or based on our hectic holiday schedules:)

    A staple for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah is the menorah. The menorah is a like an elaborate candle holder with nine spots- 1 set apart for the samash (a prominent lit candle) which is used to light the other eight candles. The eight candles are lit one day at a time starting with the first day of Hanukkah and ending on the last day when the whole menorah will be lit.

    We have found five exquisite modern menorahs to fit with your style and theme. Shop on!



    We love the organic shape of this Branch Menorah made by Anat Basanta. Made of brass and inspired by nature- if your style is more woodsy and natural this is the perfect fit. $75 at Jboutiq


    Hanukkah - Ceramic Elephant Menorah


    With it's beach-y vibe this cute elephant could blend into your white on white chateau. Jonathon Adler makes holidays fun and we love this elephant design modern menorah. $128


    Sleek and modern- one might miss this as a menorah if it wasn't filled with candles. From March SF this gorgeous piece isn't cheap at $2500 but made from polished brass to last a lifetime and beyond.


    Unique, minimalist and very modern. The menorah from Marmol Radziner is made from walnut for an organic look and sold at Dwell which adds a hipster vibe. $140


    There is something Old World about this beautiful menorah from Stil Novo Design. Made from recycled materials you can feel good about the environment while celebrating your Hanukkah! $295
