Religious uses of candles holders


Candles and candles holders are also often used in religious ceremonies and as a functional and symbolic light for spiritual means. In Jewish homes, two candles are lit every Friday at sunset to signal the beginning of the Sabbath, so candles holders are often placed. A seven-branched menorah, known as the menorah, is the national symbol of the nation of Israel based on the menorah that was used in the Temple of Jerusalem in ancient times. Another special menorah found in many Jewish houses is the Hanukiah, which holds eight candles and an additional candle that can be used to light other candles.
Tall candles holders and altar lamps are also frequently found in Christian churches, while Eastern Catholic and Orthodox bishops use a special set of two- and three-candles holders called dikirion and trikirion to bless people for worship.
