Roundup: Magnificent Menorahs

In a recent New York Times article, designer Jonathan Adler shopped for design-savvy menorahs. The article explains the difficulties and joys in hunting for the perfect menorah.

"Menorahs are a really fun design challenge," [Adler] said, because they have a clear set of requirements: The menorah holds eight candles lined up at about the same height — symbolizing the ancient miracle at the center of the holiday, when a small amount of oil was said to burn for eight nights — and a ninth candle, the shamash, which stands at a different height and is used for lighting the others.

Adler himself has been making menorahs for years, including the Utopia Man/Woman Menorah ($295), shown here. I've also rounded up some other options, both modern and traditional, that will please those looking for a design-savvy menorah this season.
