FOR WHICH VENUE WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THE MENORAHS?

3′ Menorah – indoor use only, store window or counter top. It’s too small to stand on the floor.

6′ Menorah – Indoors in a smaller lobby e.g. student center, office, hospital, etc… or outside in front of a private home if you desire an elegant presence.

9′ and 12′ Menorahs – indoors in malls, large stores or government buildings with high ceilings. Outdoors anywhere!

IS THE BASE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE MENORAH?

Yes. However, you will need to determine whether your Menorah will be for indoor or outdoor use. If it will be displayed outside, you will need the ground insert.

IS IT DIFFICULT TO INSTALL THE IN GROUND BASE?

No. The ground base can be installed in minutes with the right tools. It’s easy and clean to install and store. The maintenance person at any building will have no problem at all.

CAN I USE THE INDOOR BASE OUTSIDE?

Technically yes, but it’s not recommended. The indoor base has industrial strength suction cups which adhere well to indoor floor. It will hold the Menorah, but unlike the ground insert, it is venerable to strong winds (or vandalism).

If there is no choice, i.e. there is no grass to place an in ground insert, there is only pavement or sidewalk, it is suggested to use the indoor base and place cinder block or sand bags on it. However, these should be covered with decorative material or a gift wrapped box to appear as a holiday gift or decoration to maintain the beauty of the menorah.

DO I NEED ANY OTHER ACCESSORIES BESIDES THE MENORAH AND BASE?

There are 2 optional accessories: LED sign and candle conversion kits for lighting with a real flame in order to say the Holiday blessings for lighting.

THE BULBS ARE BEAUTIFUL, ALL WEATHER, TALL AND DECORATIVE.  ARE THE BULBS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

No.

DO I NEED TO USE YOUR BULBS?

Any regular bulb will work. However, the 6-inch chimney shaped bulb is specially designed to complement the Menorah. It is bright and weatherproof and highly recommended for outdoor use in cold climates. Our bulbs are good for 1500 hours. If you use them for Hanukkah only, these bulbs will last for many, many years.

DO I HAVE TO CLIMB ON A LADDER TO LIGHT THE BULBS?

No. There is an automatic lighting control unit built directly  into the main stem. Simply press the manual/auto button to light your Menorah.

WHAT ARE THE CANDLE CONVERSION KITS?

If you host a holiday celebration and you would like to say the appropriate blessings, you will need to light with fire. The base of the kit is threaded to screw into the socket just like the bulb. It will hold up well and it looks great!

CAN YOU USE THE CANDLE CONVERSION KIT OUTDOORS?

Yes. Unless you’re dealing with a storm of high winds, it will work well and glow beautifully in the dark.

DOES THE MENORAH RUST? DOES IT HANDLE WEATHER WELL?

The menorah is made of aluminum. It does not rust and looks beautiful after years of being in the most harsh weather conditions.

IF I LOSE A PART, CAN I CALL YOU FOR REPLACEMENT PARTS?

Absolutely. It’s our pleasure to serve you, but with the storage case it shouldn’t happen.

CAN I USE THE MENORAH IN OTHER COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE U.S.?

Yes. A transformer is needed to convert from 110v to 220v.
