The Temple Institute has created a life-sized menorah, designed by goldsmith Chaim Odem, intended for use in a future Third Temple, The Jerusalem Post describes the menorah as made "according to excruciatingly exacting Biblical specifications and prepared to be pressed into service immediately should the need arise.".[15] The menorah is made of one talent (interpreted as 45 kg) of 24 karat pure gold, hammered out of a singlar block of solid gold, with decorations based on the depiction of the original in the Arch of Titus and the Temple Institute's interpretation of the relevant religious texts.

The Golden Menorah

The Temple Institute, based in Jerusalemís Old City, has created replicas of many of the ritual objects used in the Jewish temple, including many of the vessels, trumpets and priestly vestments, all built, hewn and sewn according to excruciatingly exacting Biblical specifications and prepared to be pressed into service immediately should the need arise.

Perhaps the most awe-inspiring piece in the vast collection assembled by the Temple Institute is the massive solid gold menorah, which is displayed inside a transparent case in the Jewish Quarter, overlooking the stairs that lead down to the Western Wall plaza and the Temple Mount.

The menorah was crafted following years of painstaking research by Temple Institute scholars, who combed copious amounts of archaeological evidence, textual sources and more before they arrived at the right formula. It was finally forged out of 45 kilograms of 24-karat gold, and weighing in at one half-ton, is valued at some $3 million.
