Dust off your dreidels and get out the gelt, because Hanukkah is right around the corner! This eight-day celebration is one of the most fun Jewish holidays of the year, complete with potato pancakes, deep-fried doughnuts, and lots of presents. But the most iconic tradition? Lighting the menorah candles each night. “Finding the perfect menorah for your home and family is so, so personal,” says lifestyle expert Rebekah Lowin. “It’s more than just a decorative piece, after all; it’s an interactive ritual object imbued with tons of meaning and metaphor.”
Even if you already have an heirloom menorah that you use every year, growing your menorah collection is always a good idea, especially if your tastes skew modern rather than traditional. “Adding a new piece of Judaica to your existing collection or beginning a new one can be a lovely way to support Jewish small businesses and celebrate Jewish artists — or just add to and revive your family’s excitement about the holiday,” Rebekah explains.
We collaborated with Rebekah to find beautiful, modern menorahs (at a range of price points) that will make your holiday feel fresh. Take a look at our top picks below, all of which are sure to up the style factor during your Festival of Lights celebrations.
