This children toy menorah set is a fantastic way to introduce children to the Jewish traditional eight-day winter celebration. For eight days, a candle is lit using the “shamash” which is the candle that is used to light the rest.
Every night, one candle is lit so that by the eighth day of this traditional Jewish celebration, all the candles have been kindled. Special prayers and blessings are recited after lighting a candle each night, often to a traditional melody.
The menorah is an essential part to the Chanukah celebration. It is celebrated every night for eight days by lighting a candle on each night. A menorah is lit in every household and sometimes even by each member of the household which is why this set is a great addition to a child’s toy collection.
When it is time for the Chanukah celebrations, each child can have their very own Menorah set. They can learn what the celebration is about and all the traditional steps taken to correctly celebrate it.
Each night they can use their very own “shamash” to light their nightly candle for the eight days this religious celebrations lasts for. This Menorah set is made out of wood and has been crafted to be strong and sturdy to withhold many years of use.
It has been beautifully crafted and decorated to appeal to young children, so that they can’t wait to light their candle every night during the traditional Jewish celebration of Chanakah.
