The Seven Branched Menorah
According to the Bible (Ex. 37:17-24) and the Talmud (Men. 28b), Bezalel made the original Menorah from a single mass of gold for the Tabernacle (Ex. 25:31-40). The Tabernacle was the temporary, mobile center for worship of God used by the Israelites from the days of Moses until construction of the First temple in Jerusalem. According to tradition, the original Menorah sat with ten additional lamps in the First Temple in Jerusalem. When the 1stTemple was destroyed, they were demolished. Uses Hanukkah candle
