The first night of Chanukah falls on Sunday, November 28, and no festival of lights is complete without a menorah. The centerpiece of any celebration, the Hanukkah Menorah (aka Hanukkiah) offers room for nine candle holders: one for each holiday night plus an extra candle that is used to light the rest.
While you might imagine a candelabra adorned with silver or gold, menorahs are currently available in a wide variety of materials, shapes, and sizes. Whether you’re looking for something modern and minimal or a showpiece centerpiece, it’s easier than ever to find a menorah that suits your vibe and decor.
Give your old heirlooms a break and purchase our list below of 15 gorgeous menorahs you’ll be proud to display throughout the holidays (and maybe even all year round).
