We're admiring the current crop of menorahs that are not only modern in form, but add a note of glamour, too. In time for the first day of Hanukkah next week, here are five favorites: Above: From San Francisco kitchen emporium March, the  March Brass Menorah  consists of nine individual candle holders and a matching tray made from silver plated polished brass, $2,500. The design is also available in  Patinated Steel  for $2,000 and Silver  $3,200. Above: From Brooklyn and Hudson-based ceramicist Paula Greif, the Ceramic Menorah is hand built and is available for $425 at The Jewish Museum. For more on Paula see our post The Handmade Kitchen: Paula Greif in Brooklyn . Above: The  Menorah  from architects  Marmol Radziner  is handmade in Los Angeles from walnut and bronze; $140. Above: The  Ascalon Menorah with Candles  is made from solid Carrara marble and has eight candleholders to correspond with the eight days of Hanukkah and one shamash (the candle used to light the others) on a different level. Left and right diagonals in the design create an 18-degree angle, which designer Brad Ascalon points out references the fact that in Judaism, the number 18 symbolizes chai or life. Available from Design Within Reach, it's $275 and includes 45 hand-dipped, 6-inch white candles. Above: The  Nick and the Candlestick  by Lindsey Adelman was inspired by antique brass weights and named after a Sylvia Plath poem. It has nine brass holders at varying heights that rest on a walnut tray; candles are inserted onto spikes, so they appear to float. The design is available from Matter for $1,905. For a more traditional looking menorah, check out a perennial favorite: Josh Owen's Menorah for Areaware .
