How neat and classy-looking is this multifunctional menorah? As soon as Hanukkah ends, you can use this menorah as an elegant, year-round flower vase. A beautiful piece that celebrates Jewish heritage, we also appreciate that you can change the placement of the shamash (the candle used to light other candles on the menorah) since it's a removable acrylic part.
