    A menorah is branched candelabra that can symbolize either the traditional tabernacle menorah or be used during the eight nights of the Hanukkah holiday. A tabernacle menorah is a seven-branched golden candelabra. A Hanukkah menorah can be made from any material, and is designed with eight arms. The eight Hanukkah candles represent the eight nights that the original Hanukkah menorah remained lit for, despite having just one night’s worth of oil.
