The Glowing Light of Hanukkah
The U. Nahon Museum of Italian Jewish Art brings its visitors into a special Hanukkah atmosphere through a display of some of the finest examples of Italian Hanukkah Lamps from the museum’s collection. The exhibit includes lamps that were either produced in Italy or belonged to Italian Jewish families. The elaborate shape and decoration of some of these objects is unique, their luxuriant style and varied motifs mirror the Italian artistic milieu. A few of them have different origins and reflect the diverse historical and geographical experience of the Jewish communities in Italy.
