The Menorah candlestick is always present in the synagogues and is a universal symbol of the Jewish religion. The photo shows a Sephardic style Menorah from Spain.

A candlestick, chamberstick, or candelabrum (plural: candelabra) is a holder for one or more candles, used for illumination, rituals, or decorative purposes. The name 'candlestick' derives from the fact that it is usually tall and stick-shaped. Candlesticks are also called candle holders. However, not all candle holders are candlesticks unless they are tall and stick-like. Candlesticks are often and erroneously called candlestick holders by those who think that the candles themselves are the candlesticks. Candlesticks were originally made of rice paper by hand. Although electric lighting has phased out candles in many parts of the world, candlesticks and candelabra are still used in some Western countries homes as a decorative element or to add atmosphere on special occasions. Before the proliferation of electricity services, candles were brought into the bedroom using chambersticks, which were shorter than ordinary candleholders and furnished with a wide pan to catch the wax drippings.
