The Menurkey

The menorah making the most waves this year is the Menurkey. Created by an ambitious 9-year-old, this ingenious turkey-menorah hybrid is a great way to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime celebration of Thanksgivvukah.

The Hora Menorah

This menorah hits the nail on the top hat. When you’re finished saying the blessings over this handmade candleholder, grab your loved ones and dance the hora ‘round the menorah until the flame subsides.

Glowing Menorah

Fear not, fire-averse this is the menorah for you. Just break and shake the glow sticks for a hazard-free fête. The neon glow will illuminate the room long after the last latke is devoured.

Menorah Cork

Here’s a menorah that’s both festive and functional. Place your menorah cork atop your best bottle of Manischewitz and watch the candles burn bright. The real miracle here would be making the bottle last 8 nights.
