    How to use "Menorah" in context?

    A Hanukkah menorah is composed of nine sets of three oil lamps. The word "menorah" is Hebrew for "candle". The origin of the Hanukkah menorah is uncertain, but it may have originated in the second century BCE in the Land of Israel. The Hanukkah menorah is synonymous with the gift of light. It is said that when the Jews were enslaved in Babylon, a Syrian king took pity on them and allowed them to keep their customs. One of the customs was to light a menorah on the first day of Hanukkah.
