Zion Judaica LED Electric Hanukkah Menorah

A bold pop of blue defines this festive menorah that has a Star of David imprinted at the base. However, the best part of this design is that it can be powered up with a USB cable or four AAA batteries for a cordless setup. Candles light up individually with a simple button.

This Chabad-style menorah features diagonal branches, which is a symbolic design choice. Unless you're ultra-Orthodox (in which case you likely wouldn't opt for an electric menorah), you can simply appreciate the aesthetics of its sleek angles. To use, simply plug it in and turn each bulb slightly to activate its light.

The most traditional of our picks is this Rite Lite electric menorah, which is designed to look like the classic depictions of menorot in Jewish text and art history (you've definitely seen this one in your synagogue window at some point!). It features clear LED bulbs and comes with a power cable, but there's also a micro USB port and a battery hatch that you can use to power it up on the go.
