The Menorah Candle Company, a manufacturer and exporter of millions of Hanukkah candles worldwide, is one of the oldest businesses in the industrial zone of Sderot, the Negev city better known as a frequent target for Hamas rockets than for its commerce.

Menorah produces the small bright-blue box filled with 44 multicolored candles and printed with iconic images designed by Boris Schatz of the early 20th-century Bezalel art movement. This simple box of candles has been a trusted Hanukkah holiday component for Jews around the world for decades.
