Braunstein, Susan L.
Luminous Art. Hanukkah Menorahs of the Jewish Museum.

New Haven The Jewish Museum & Yale University Press: 2004.

"The Jewish tradition of lighting the menorah during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah represents the victory of religious freedom-the liberation and rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem in 164 BCE. Luminous Art celebrates this tradition and the craftsmanship of menorahs by showcasing over 100 Hanukkah lamps from the collection in The Jewish Museum in New York. The lamps and menorahs were created with materials from all over the world, including the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, and they date back from the Renaissance to present day."

Hardcover. 9.5"x12.5", 244 pages, color and black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.
