Do you need a last-minute $375 menorah?

Here is a list of five places unlikely to sell menorahs, but do anyway.

5.) Artful Home’s “Modern Menorah.” Price: $290. Not my cup of tea, but at least it’s modern:

4.) Unica Home’s artfully named “Cement Candlesticks.” Simply a steal at $120. The “cubes can be rearranged,” but I think the way it’s currently arranged could make for an interesting eighth night:

3.) The MoMA Store’s “Flexus Menorah.” You can find it under the ever-useful category Living>Candlelight. However, as MoMA customer Knit-Picker sez: “3 stars. This is a Hannukia, not a Menorah.” I dont’ think I’m pretentious enough to call it that quite yet, though, myself. $125.

2.) Crate & Barrel’s “Tovah Menorah.” Sounds like a good menorah. $32.95.

1.) Toys R Us’s “Mini Menorah Set,” for those (like me) who aren’t above using birthday candles. $7.99. Candles may or may not be included.

My vote for the most expensive menorah: This one from the Jewish Museum, $375.

For those of us who are just too busy, here’s an online menorah.

And of course, for those of us who just can’t seem to remember if today is a Jewish holiday, this is for you.

  1. More unlikely: Evil Mad Science sells a solder-it-yourself LED menorah, in a variety of colors and styles. $13.95-$15.95. Solder, soldering iron, and batteries not included.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
