Acrylic and brass menorah

Having the Thursday of Thanksgiving overlap with Hanukkah last occurred in 1888 and supposedly won’t happen again for more than 79,000 years.  You’re going to need a menorah to celebrate the holiday.  You’re going to need one in Lucite even if you aren’t planning to celebrate.  This menorah will look great in your home whether you are Jewish or Gentile.
