"God tried many times to teach Moses how to make a menorah. But whenever Moses set about making one, he couldn't remember what it was supposed to look like. God even drew a picture of a menorah on Moses' palm and told him to copy it. Still, Moses could not do it. So God told Moses to throw a piece of gold into a fire. And the first menorah formed itself." Powdal tells the story of the menorah in a delightful way. If you've ever wondered about the origin of this symbol, this is the book for you.
