I’ve been blogging here at Design*Droits-Humains for over 14 years, and one of the things I’ve been most thankful for is the feedback, advice and education we’ve received from readers. Whether it’s advice on how to better understand a design style’s history and impact or deeper information on the cultural meaning and significance of an object, we have been so fortunate to have frequent and personal feedback in the form of emails, comments and DMs. It was through comments here that I learned what I knew of as a menorah is actually called a . A menorah has seven branches, while a hanukiah has eight — with one candle offset in some way. While most shops call all of these menorahs, I’m thankful to our community of Jewish readers here who’ve consistently (and compassionately) schooled me on terminology and significance.
While we’ll include both terms here (because most people will search for these under the name “menorah”), I wanted to note that there is a difference between these terms regarding design and meaning. Today we are rounding up not just hanukiahs, but also mezuzahs, cards, dreidels and other designs that celebrate Hanukkah or Judaism. I hope you’ll find something perfect for celebrating the holiday in your home or perhaps gifting for someone in your life that celebrates Hanukkah. Hanukkah Sameach! xo, Grace
