Small and Portable: A Travel Menorah Makes A Great Gift

A travel menorah is small and compact. It is the perfect companion when traveling, or it makes the ideal gift for students and frequent travelers.  It can save the holiday. The festival of lights simply isn’t the same without lighting the candles. When away from home, this simple task can seem insurmountable. A little aluminium foil solved this problem when we were younger. Actually, it was a lot of foil, and by twisting, folding, and bending, we could create our own Hanukkah travel menorah. Then, someone would walk by creating a gentle breeze, and our creation would tip over, candles and all.

My Favorite Travel Menorah

Now that we have a travel menorah, this is no longer a problem. There are many on the market to choose from, but I do have a favourite. It’s the Magnetic Box Travel Hanukkah Menorah by Laura Cowan.

Here’s what I love about this travel menorah:

  • Magnetic items don’t get lost.
  • My creativity comes through as each night I can arrange it differently, using the box as a base.
  • Made of steel and anodized aluminium, I know it will hold up.
  • It’s compact at only 4 ¼ x 4 ¼ x 2 ¼ in (11cm x 11cm x 6cm), self-contained, and holds the candles.
  • The artist lives and creates in Israel.
