The menorah is a seven-branched candelabrum mentioned in the Torah and other ancient sources, as well as being a symbol of Judaism. It has been a central part of Jewish life since the earliest days and has been the national emblem of the State of Israel since its founding in 1948.
In the fall of 1941, as Nazi troops, cheered on by their nazi leaders, ravaged a path across Europe, Avram, the chief rabbi of a shtetl that sprawled over one half of the town of Narodny dug a deep hole at the base of an old tree. He buried the menorah in the earth, wrapped in a linen sheet.
He waited until the end of the war, then retrieved the treasure and slid it back into place in the synagogue. The gleaming beauty of the silver menorah brought a radiance to the room that rekindled the flame of yiddishkeit that had been dormant in so many lives.
