The observance of Hanukkah as a time of freedom and miracles resonates strongly with Jews today as in centuries past, and the Hanukkah lamp is central to the celebratory ritual. The importance of the Hanukkah lamp is reflected in the collection of The Jewish Museum in New York: its 1,022 lamps represent the largest assemblage of Hanukkah lamps in the world. This publication presents the Museum's unparalleled collection in its entirety. Remarkably expressive and varied, these lamps are a revelation for anyone interested in Jewish culture, history, and the beauty and diversity of these beloved traditional objects.
