Classic and fundamental in the Jewish faith is the menorah, one of the oldest symbols of the Jewish faith. The nine-branched menorah trivet seen here is used on Chanukah, commemorating the miracle that a day's worth of oil for this menorah lasted eight days. This simple yet elegant, stylized version of the design is heavily cast in solid brass and can be used as a decorative accessory or as a trivet. A beautiful gift for a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah. Trivets are designed to protect your tables and sideboards from stains and heat. Measures 8.25" x 6.25". Weighs 2.00 lbs.
