The Chanukah Menorah

The Menorah Candlelabra
The most important tradition associated with Chanukah is the kindling of the lights on the Menorah (the Hanukkiya).  On each of the eight nights of Chanukah, a candle is lit to commemorate the rededication of the ancient temple in Jerusalem, when the last remaining container of undefiled oil miraculously lasted for eight nights.

The ninth branch of the candlelabra is reserved for the shamash, the servant light, which is lit first and used to kindle the other lights of the menorah.  The shamash is kept apart from the other candles.
