Religious and political significance of the menorah
A new branch of the menorah is lit on each holiday night of Hanukkah.

The purest form of olive oil is used in lighting the candelabrum. Judaism has used the menorah as a religious symbol since the ancient times. The Judaica menorah also forms part of the coat of arms of the modern State of Israel. Six of the seven lamps of the candelabrum are inward inclined and represent the branches of human knowledge.
