lives in the Old Jerusalem, the

Jordanian-controlled part of the

Called "Mother of Mercy" by
the Arabs, she is beloved in the

The word Menorah means
candlestick in Hebrew. Orig-
inally, the Menorah was simply
the source of illumination for
the Temple in Jerusalem. The
Menorah in the Temple was
seven-branched but because it
was forbidden to reproduce the
sacred golden Menorah of the
Temple for ritual or other pur-
poses, the Hanukah Menorah is
not seven-branched.

A Happy and Healthy
New Year to Our
