A special seven branched candelabrum used by Hebrews to celebrate CHANUKAH, the MENORAH is linked to a story wherein the original lamp stayed miraculously lit in a Jerusalem temple much longer than it was capable because the oil within was only enough for one day. Once used as part of an annual time marking ceremony in which each day of the last week of a fifty-two week calendar of seven days a week was marked with lighting one of the seven candles. Later, when it was learned that there exist more than 364 days in a year, the MENORAH lamp added an extra candle to account for the extra “pass-over” day to mark 365 days a year. A nine candle version MENORA may be based on the idea that every four years or so another extra “pass-over” candle was needed to balance the solar count within the popular lunar count calendar of the region. See CHANUKAH, JUBILEE, and CHRISTMAS.
