The Jerusalem Municipality, "Meir Panim" Organization and "Ariel" , in association
with The Israel Electric Company have built the world's largest menorah.
The "Menorah of Lights" was built in the entrance to Jerusalem, near "Center 1".
The menorah is 21 meters wide, and has nine branches, each of them 20 meters tall.
It is made of 1800 light bulbs, each of them 500 watts strong, and weighs, in total,
50 tons. The menorah produces more light than all the lights along the
Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway.
The idea to build the menorah was conceived by Dudy Zilberslag, chairman of
"Meir Panim", a volunteer organization that provides food for the needy.
The menorah will be officially entered in the Guinness Book of World Records
as the largest menorah in the world.
