When I got the idea for this I went on the internet to see what styles and shapes that were there for the menorah.
I saw many different kinds.
Some with different colored candles and I assumed that they had special meaning, such as in our advent wreath.
I found that the initial symbol was all blue and white from the Israeli flag.
The middle candle is white and is lit and then the 8 candles of the menorah are lit one day at a time from the middle candle.
The 8 candles represent the 8 days that the oil for the candles lasted after the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem.
It represents hope.
Hope and faith that God will always provide.
That is common in all faiths.
