The Menorah as a Religious Symbol
The menorah is essential to celebrating Hanukkah. Moses was given instruction by God on the design of the menorah on Mt. Sinai (Exodus 25:31-40). There are seven-branch and nine-branch menorahs according to tradition; they originally held lamps burning olive oil; later, candles were used.
In many Orthodox Christian churches a seven-lamp menorah is placed on the altar. The Book of Revelation refers to seven golden lampstands which represent seven churches (Revelation 1:20).
