This spectacular Hanukkah Menorah and dreidel set is a fun and beautiful way to light the Hanukkah candles representing the most famous Hannukah game. A brilliant idea—the menorah is set up on a painted wood rectangular foundation with 9 holes in it to hold the eight dreidel candleholders plus the shamash! The different sides of the dreidels form four beautiful and distinctive pictures as the vistas of the holy city of Jerusalem, the seven species, oriental designs and Noah`s Ark. Each dreidel can be removed and repositioned. The piece is hand-painted and then covered with three layers of lacquer. It is totally functional and waterproof and may be hand-washed. It also contains brass candle inserts that double as the tops of the dreidels to protect the wood from the candle wax.
This piece comes from an art studio in Jerusalem that employs new immigrants and mentally disabled individuals. A portion of the studio’s profits is donated to charity. The artist’s principal techniques encompass painting on silk, hand embroidery, raw-silk appliqué and painting on wood.
