Menora vor der Knesset

Menorat Haknesset

The Knesset Menorah (Hebrew: מנורת הכנסת Menorat HaKnesset) is a bronze monument, about five meters high, that is located at the edge of Gan Havradim (Rose Garden) in front of the Knesset. The Parliament of the United Kingdom gave this monument to Israel in 1956, and it had been built by Benno Elkan, a British-Jewish sculptor, who worked on it for 6 years. The Menorah built in the shape of the Menorah which appears in Arch of Titus includes engravings of about 30 important events, idioms, characters and terms from the Jewish history, and is considered as a visual "textbook" about it.
