Silver Menorahs

What’s the most exciting part about Hanukkah?

Some might say the Hanukkah gifts.

Others might say eating (or cooking) delicious Hanukkah donuts.

But most people say: lighting the Hanukkah candles.

There’s nothing like taking out your beautiful Menorah and saying the Hanukkah candle blessings for the first time…

You know what makes it even more special? Lighting a gorgeous, silver Hanukkah Menorah that shines all across the room.

Ever had that feeling?

Well, you’re about to have it soon…

Traditional Silver Menorahs

Did you know that the original Menorah (where the famous miracle of the oil occurred) 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.

In this section, you’ll see the best of both 7-branch & 9-branch Hanukkah Menorahs…

Ner Mitzvah Chanukah Oil Menorah – Silver Plated

Top Traditional Menorah

Ner Mitzvah Chanukah Oil Menorah Silver Plated

If you really want to re-live the Hanukkah miracle, then forget about lighting Hanukkah candles… After all, it’s called “the miracle of the oil”, not “the miracle of the candles”.

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.

Tip: You can also use Hanukkah candles if you prefer.

Godinger Silver Art Classic Nickel-Plated Floral Design Menorah

Godinger Silver Art Classic Nickel Plated Floral Design Menorah

Godinger is mostly famous for their incredible crystal designs (take a look at their amazing crystal Menorah), but apparently, they’re also in the silver Menorahs “game”.

Although not as impressive as their crystal Menorah (understandably), their nickel-plated Menorah puts up a great fight to the other silver Menorahs out there.

The lovely floral design makes it a very nice centerpiece to showcase in any Jewish living room or “display area” – which automatically makes it a neat (and inexpensive!) gift to get someone for Hanukkah.

Silver Plated Seven Branch Menorah – 12 Tribes of Israel

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.

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.

  • Premium look
  • Affordable price

Pewter Large Tall Hanukkah Menorah (for Candle/Oil use)

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?

I will just say this: this grand wall Menorah looks as if it belonged to the holy Jewish temple. I haven’t seen anything like it before.

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