Overview

WOW!! Electronic version of over 550 stunning black and white photos of copper-alloy menorahs made by pioneer artisans during the historic period of Jewish and Israeli history spanning the 1920's through early 1970's. Poetic images tell both the stories of Hanukkah and of modern Israel and document the love of freedom and its victory over tyranny.
Together with its acclaimed full-color predecessor, LIGHTING THE WAY TO FREEDOM: TREASURED HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF EARLY ISRAEL (published 3 years ago), the two volumes showcase over 1100 sculptures and comprise the definitive, unique, and comprehensive catalog of this genre and historical period that have stunned readers worldwide and opened up the whole new area of Israeliana.
Delicate subtleties of black and white images in this new volume harmonize with the stunning full color drama if its companion to offer a rare visual extravaganza. (Visit us at hanukkiot.com for much more!)
