Modern Silver Menorahs

Traditional silver Menorahs are nice…

The problem? 

“You’ve seen one, you’ve seen em’ all”.

Lucky for you, we have some pretty talented Jewish & Israeli artists that thought the same way and decided it’s time to turn the traditional Menorah look into a modern silver Menorah masterpiece.

The result?

Put on your goggles… because you’re about to enter a modern Jewish art-exhibit.

If you’ve been following my website for the past few years, you probably know that I’m a sucker for modern designs that combine traditional Jewish symbols…It’s just a fascinating combination.

In this case – it’s not just any Jewish symbol… The Tree of Life is arguably the most ancient and most important symbol in Jewish history.

  • … The symbol that the Kabbalah describes as the foundation of life. 
  • … The symbol that Abraham the Patriarch talks about in Sefer Yetzirah – the earliest book in Jewish history (believed to be written by Abraham himself).

It’s no surprise then why this gorgeous silver-plated Menorah is at the top of the list, and our “Top Silver Menorah” award-winner.

Without a doubt – one of the most unique Hanukkah gifts and a fabulous way to celebrate the festival of lights.

Traditional Silver Menorahs

Did you know that the original Menorah (where the famous miracle of the oil occurred) only had 7 branches?

Yet, we celebrate Hanukkah with a 9 branch Chanukiah to symbolize the miracle of the oil that lasted for 8 days (plus an extra candle for the Shamash) 

That’s why many Jewish people choose to get a traditional silver Menorah with 7 branches as a decorative piece, as well as a 9 branch Menorah to actually light the Hanukkah candles.

You know about, how about I show you the best of both!

If I told you to close your eyes and picture a traditional silver-plated Hanukkah Menorah (a silver Chanukiah) – odds are it would look something like this.

Not only is it a traditional silver Menorah – but it’s also made in Jerusalem… that’s pretty traditional, yes?

Just because you can’t light a Hanukkah Menorah in Jerusalem this year – doesn’t mean you can’t light a Menorah that was designed in Jerusalem.

Tip: Just like the previous silver-plated Menorah, you can use oil cups to light it.

Bonus: It even comes with a Hanukkah blessing pamphlet that includes the prayers you need to recite over the candles (as well as Maoz Tzur in Hebrew & English)

This With a fully silver plated designed and a royal look, you get to experience lighting a tremendous Menorah for an incredibly affordable price.

Note: Made by Ner Mitzvah – one of the top Hanukkah oil burning candelabra providers out there.

Suitable for both your own Hanukkah ceremony centerpiece or as a gift for someone you love.

Silver Plated Seven Branch Menorah – 12 Tribes of Israel

Silver Plated Seven Branch Menorah 12 Tribes Of Israel

Time for a 7-branch silver Menorah… After all, this is the TRUE meaning of a traditional Hanukkah Menorahs – a Menorah designed in remembrance of the original golden Menorah from the Jewish holy temple in Jerusalem.

Add that to the symbols of the twelve tribes of Israel, and you get a big (center)piece of Jewish history shining in your home all year round (for a ridiculously low price).

Important: This doesn’t qualify as a Chanukiah, which requires 9 branches. If you’re looking for a Menorah strictly for Hanukkah – go with one of the other options on this list.

Sterling Silver Menorahs

Sterling silver Menorahs represent one thing: luxury. 

It’s one thing to just have a Menorah you dust off once a year, VS having a fascinating Menorah you can proudly display for the rest of the 357 days of the year.

And that’s exactly what these spectacular Menorahs were made for – to upgrade your living room and turn it into a luxurious, welcoming Jewish living room.

And what a worthy winner it is.

Classy, elegant, and absolutely gorgeous…

When it comes to quality – there’s nothing that comes remotely close to Hazorfim.

Nadav Art Large Sterling Silver Classic Menorah

Nadav Art Large Sterling Silver Classic Menorah 

Nadav Art is known for crafting some of the most remarkable silver Judaica artworks from their studio in Jerusalem, and of course, their sterling silver Hanukkah Menorahs stand out way up there… like a Shamash.

Don’t let the “classic” part of the title fool you. Nadav Art’s sterling silver Menorah is NOT something you light up for 8 days and then let it collect dust in the closet for the whole year.

After Hanukkah is over, you better clean up the remainders of the candle wax (or oil cups), polish it a little – and display it in your living room (or anywhere else you like) – otherwise you’re robbing yourself from the bright & shining beauty this wonderful Menorah can project.

Bonus: Plus, it comes with a nice little laminated Hanukkah blessings booklet (in both English and Hebrew) – so you can recite the candles blessings and sing the Hanukkah songs with your beautiful voice.

Pewter Menorahs

Surprised to see pewter Menorahs in an article about silver Menorahs?

Well, even though pewter is not 100% silver, it’s great if you’re looking for a cheaper silver-like alternative without having to drill a hole in your wallet.

If you choose correctly, pewter can be just as pretty as silver, and just as durable (if not more) – making it a great option if you’re looking for a combination of a good-looking & cheap Menorah. 

Tip: Not to mention if you’re a pewter Judaica collector – you’re about to enter pewter paradise.

Pewter Large Hanukkah Menorah For Candle Or Oil Use

If you ask me, it’s much more exciting to light an oil Menorah as opposed to lighting Hanukkah candles. Especially if you have kids – they’ll get a chance to witness a real oil Menorah light up – and re-live the miracle all over again!

Let’s do a little thought experiment:

  1. The entire family gathers around the oil Menorah
  2. You turn off the lights in the room.
  3. You recite the Hanukkah candle blessings
  4. Finally, you light the Chanukiah (either oil or candles)

Now take a step back and witness the gorgeous oil candelabra light up in the dark.

Feels kind of good, doesn’t it?

Olivia Riegel is the artist behind this flashing masterpiece. Made of HUNDREDS of Swarovski crystals + pewter in silver finish.

And if you happen to read this sometime after Hanukkah, then don’t be afraid to gift this during any time of the year, especially if it’s a special occasion.

Note: There’s a reason why this was also chosen as one of our top crystal Menorahs for any occasion.

Steve Jobs once said: “This is for the crazy ones…”

Let me tell ya – you definitely have to be “crazy”, good crazy, to invest in this mindblowing antique sterling silver Menorah.

I haven’t seen anything quite like this before.

And why is it for the crazy ones?

Because you have to be crazy (and crazy wealthy) to be able to afford this.

If you can – hats off to you, and I’m extremely jealous…

But you better hurry, because as you might expect –  there’s only one available on Ebay.

Zion Judaica Artistic Silver Finish Menorah Tree of Life

Zion Judaica Artistic Silver Menorah Tree Of Life

We started off this section with the most expensive sterling silver antique Menorah. How about we finish off with the most affordable one?

And the good news: you don’t have to belong to the Rothchild family to be able to afford it.

Note: The reason it’s so inexpensive is that its made of cast iron with an antique silver finish – excellent for price-conscious antique buyers.

For a really cheap price, you can add a nice Kabbalistic touch to this year’s Hanukkah by lighting a Tree of Life Hanukkah. 

And it’s really attractive, too (don’t let the image fool you, it looks MUCH better in real life). So attractive, you’d probably want to keep it out for the rest of the year instead of letting it collect dust in the closet all year long.

Thankfully, normal people like you and I can afford dozens of these and have our own little forest of Tree of Life trees.
