Hanukkah is the Jewish festival of light that happens towards the end of the Jewish calendar. A Hanukiah or Hanukkah Menorah, is a type of candelabra. It has nine candle holders. A Hanukkah menorah can be any shape or size, but must have 9 branches for candles. Eight candles must be in a line, while the ninth candle is out of place.This is a kosher Hanukiah.
Throughout the 8 days of Hanukkah, Jewish families get together at sunset and light the Hanukiah. By the 8th day, all of the candles are burning brightly. The one candle that is out of place is known as the service candle. The Hebrew is ‘Shamash’. This should be lit and then used to the light each of the eight remaining candles from left to right. They are not to be confused with the seven candle Menorah, which, is only to be used within the Temple. The Menorah is a symbol for the Jewish faith worldwide.
