Dec. 31, 2008 - PRLog -- Who would have thought that in Brooklyn, New York rests the world’s oldest recorded religious Hanukkah Menorah also known as the special Holiday candelabra. 
Hanukkah celebrates the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem in 165 BC after the victory of the Maccabees, a Jewish national liberation movement that arose in response to attempts by the Seleucid empire
According to the ancient story, the ancient religious temple's menorah was supposed to be lit in order, but enough olive oil was found to light it for only one night. The oil instead lasted for eight nights, enough time to prepare a new supply of oil. The event was declared a miracle, and the holiday of Hanukkah was established to celebrate it each year.
During a recent archaeological excavation in Jerusalem, one of the workers uncovered an unusual artifact that was brought to the attention of the office of Antiquities. Crafted from hand pottery and small enough to be held in the palm of an adults hand, this ancient discovery has been determined to be what is known to be the world’s oldest recorded Hanukkah Menorah known to mankind since the establishment of the Hanukkah holiday.
Accompanied by a certified letter of authenticity, issued by the Head of Antiquities, this Menorah has found it’s way through a private donor to a museum based in the    Orthodox Jewish community of Boro Park, located in Brooklyn New York.  “The Living Torah Museum”, a privately owned and operated museum, According to Hershel Shanks, editor of Biblical Archaeology Review, “The Living Torah Museum”, a privately owned and operated museum, is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated solely to biblical archeology.   
The museum's curator is run by an Orthodox religious Rabbi named Rabbi Shimon Deutsch. Rabbi Deutsch has managed to collect over 900 artifacts worth over Millions of dollars. 
The goal of the museum is  to allow the younger generation to reconnect with their roots by reaffirming their learning experiences by visualizing and allowing them to see and feel these ancient artifacts and reestablish their heritage  by bringing them to life. The visitors will learn about significance of the originality of the items on display and how they played a possible role in forming our rich culture and world history.
One of the museum founders is the well known Humanitarian and Philanthropists David H. Brooks. Mr. Brooks whom is known for his passion for supporting causes for furthering Jewish education and community initiatives saw the vital need to preserve and support this valuable institution.
