To Gregory The Menorah that was in the Holy Temple had seven branches because that is how G-d said it should be built, "And you shall make its lamps seven, and he shall kindle its lamps [so that they] shed light toward its face".
The Menorah we use nowadays has 8 branches (and a ninth which is used to light the other candles) as it commemorates the miracle of Chanukah which lasted 8 days. Reply

Chanukah As you know, Chanukah can be spelled many different ways. Have ever really thought what the Menorah really means? Why is there a certain number of candles, yet one is bigger them all? If we were to really look outside the 3rd dimension, we could see what it all means....each number means something, what do you think each candle of the menorah represent and what do they mean to you?

Nicely Done I found this video to be the prefect introduction to the Chanukah Unit for our entire third grade's traditions and customs around the world. So glad I found it. Reply
