The Cincinnati Menorah
by Rookwood Pottery, ish & The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, a Bicentennial Legacy Project
Shine through hate. Illuminate traditions.
Discover our contemporary Menorah, created in collaboration with ish, Rookwood Pottery, and the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati's Bicentennial Legacy Project. Crafted in small batch and available for a limited time only, this abstract two-piece candelabrum is more than just a Jewish ritual object; it pays tribute to Cincinnati's dynamic history and culture, while also symbolizing the universal themes of Hanukkah: of resilience, the enduring human spirit, and the joy the comes from sharing light (kindness, compassion, generosity) with one another.
As we witness the challenging times and the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza, the message of Hanukkah becomes all the more relevant. It's a time when we are called to come together to find beauty and joy amidst adversity, to aspire for unity, and to recognize the importance of sharing our light with others. The Menorah stands as a symbol of hope and solidarity, not just for other Jews but for all humanity.
This work of art is more than just it's price tag - thanks to the generous support of the Jewish Federation's Bicentennial Legacy Project, 100% of sales proceeds will support future ish arts and cultural programs. Your support empowers our community engagement initiatives and helps our ongoing work to foster connections and build a sense of belonging and acceptance through the arts and Jewish culture.
