Eight candlesticks hang from the menorah. On each day of Hanukkah the user breaks one candlestick and plants it in the hole above it. Only now is it possible to light a candle in it. On the eighth day, all of the candlesticks have been picked and planted. The menorah bears various symbols taken from nature and Judaism. Picking and planting symbolize the circle of life. The breaking and construction are in memory of the destruction and rebuilding of the Temple. During the eight days the menorah is built up and created step by step.
