Looney Tunes Hanukkah Lamp, 1998

Summary

Each night of Hanukkah, many Jewish families light a symbolic candelabrum called a menorah. This deep-rooted custom commemorates a miracle that followed a military victory in the year 165 B.C.E. Menorahs often incorporate traditional motifs, but more modern ones may also depict contemporary subjects or symbols.
