My object is something called a Menorah. The Menorah comes from Egypt,but was not used by Egyptians.On holiday called Hanukkah that lasts 7 days people [often family] gather around a table and light one candle on the Menorah. Each night they light a new candle in order to represent when a little bit of light lasted the Jews 7 days and nights. Kids are given gifts and we eat a yummy food called Latkes. I chose this as my object because it has a great meaning to the jewish culture and my family as a whole. It teaches me the story of the hardships my ancestors went thru. And it reminds me of how lucky we are to have food water. There are still many things I don’t know about a Menorah, but that is what makes it special to me.
