The Traditional Hanukkiah
Almost every family has an ancient Hanukkah Menorah, one that has passed in tradition from generation to generation. These Hanukkah Menorahs have great sentimental value, apart from a potential collector’s value and monetary value.
Most of the ancient Hanukkiahs are wall Hanukkiahs. In the past, these were the most common Hanukkah Menorahs in all the Jewish communities: from Eastern European Poland to Morocco and Yemen. Therefore, a wall Hanukkah Menorah will always be perceived as a wholesome, traditional and inspiring choice.
What are wall Hanukkah Menorahs?
Unlike classic Hanukkah Menorahs, wall Hanukkah Menorahs have a unique structure. The eight candle holders emerge straight up from a tray, forming the base upon which the eight candles of the Hanukkiah are placed.
The tray is elevated on small legs and borders frame the edge of the tray. On one side of the tray, a decorated silver features the ninth candle holder, a larger one that is used as the “Shamash”, and on the other side, a small tin container holds the lighting.

A design keeping Traditions alive
The stylish décor corresponds with other magnificent sacred utensils, of the finest Jewish traditions. The use of elements such as crowns, lanterns, cornice-decorated pillars, flowers and leaves, lions, the Tablets of Testimony, and the Western Wall stones are all joined in a lush and spectacular Jewish artwork.
Hadad’s artists tend to stylishly incorporate in the Hanukkiahs inscriptions in traditional typography, such as These sacred candles, or the Ten Commandments.
Just as useful as they are lovely
Wall Hanukkiahs are not only beautiful and they are also especially convenient for lighting. The silver plate behind them frames them and enables an easy lighting experience. In addition, on cold Hanukkah evenings, the candles are protected from the wind and do not blow out so quickly.
Most of all, wall Hanukkiahs are highly stable. And when it comes to lighting candles… Maximum stability means maximum safety and is rather important.
