This is the first menorah I have bought for myself. I am 71 years old and have been using the one handed down to me by my mother. I never liked it but never replaced it. When I saw The Trace Menorah I had to have it: this menorah combines form and function. Its simplicity sets it aside from anything else I have ever seen. My concern about my cats knocking it over was solved by my creating a menorah stand from my great grandmother’s 6” cast iron skillet: it’s the perfect fit.
