Ahead of Chanukah, the iconic menorah belonging to 770, modeled after the menorah in the Beis Hamikdosh, was assembled by a classes of boys from Oholei Torah, Ohr Menachem and Darchei Menachem in Crown Heights.

The menorah, which was commissioned by a group of bochurim in 5743, was created to resemble the menorah which stood in the Beis Hamikdosh, as detailed by the Rambam in his holy handwriting.

Coated in gold, the menorah is disassembled every year after Chanukah to allow for its storage. A number of days before Chanukah it is reassembled, and then proudly displayed in 770’s main shul.
