Chairs and menorah

Chairs and menorah in front of the ehal (cabinet in which the Torah scrolls are kept) at Kehila Kedosha Janina. While the presence of this new metal seven-branched menorah as a light stand is meant to recall the Temple in Jerusalem, it is the ner tamid (eternal light) in front the ehal that is the actual symbol of the ever-burning menorah of the Tabernacle and Temple, first made by the artist Bezalel and described in the Book of Exodus.
