Nambe Menorah by Marilyn Davidson

I was going to do a lighting roundup, when I realized that Hanukkah is right around the corner (sundown 12.21 this year) and menorahs are popping up everywhere in Manhattan. Folks need guidance! Most of the ones I've seen are not beautiful enough to make it into your home (or building lobby). Here's an updated roundup for this season. I've scoured the web and chosen the ones that I like best. I've also included some good sources below. Got your own best pick? Put it in the comments below. I've already got three good ones added from the email...

>> Rosewood Menorah by Stephanie Caplan


>> Simple Festival Menorah from Chiasso


>> Skyline Menorah from Jonathan Adler

>> Olive Branch Menorah by Michael Aram

Dear Maxwell,

I think that the Flexus menorah is ideal for Apartment Therapy folks. Not only is it simply and elegantly designed, but each of the nine candleholders can be used throughout the year as lovely individual candleholders.

(However, my personal favorite is the funky Man-orah made of galvanized steel piping!)

Happy holidays!

Hi there,

Saw your posting about Menorah's and wanted to let you know about some great ones currently available at the Spertus Shop at Chicago's Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies.

The shop stocks Chicago's most creative selection of menorahs (with prices starting at $18); among them is Michael Aram's new Pomegranate Menorah, which is an elegant reminder to wish for our good deeds to be as numerous as the seeds of the pomegranate, as well the Peace Menorah, which donates a portion of the proceeds to The Institute For The Study & Practice of Nonviolence.

Thanks! Laura
