Description

The history of the Menorah as a multi-faceted, ever-evolving Jewish symbol, both in sacred and secular/pop culture. 18 essays recall the Menorah’s original form and its peregrinations as a symbol of messianic redemption, a representation of the Temple (in both Christian and Jewish art), a powerful amuletic device, and a popular national and Zionist emblem. Contributions by Daniel Sperber, Bezalel Narkiss, Rachel Sarfaty, Lee I. Levine, Elisheva Revel-Neher, Iris Fishof, Moshe Idel, et al. No itemized listing.
