Biographical/Historical Information

Also referred to as Hanukkiahs or Hanukkah menorahs, Hanukkah lamps are traditionally nine-arm candelabrum used during Hanukkah. Eight candles are lit during the holiday, with a ninth candle ("shamash") to light the candles each night. These differ from the seven-arm menorahs used in the ancient Temple or symbolically.
