The menorah is a seven branched candelabrum lit by olive oil in the Tabernacle and the Temple in Jerusalem. The menorah is one of the oldest symbols of the Jewish people. It is said to symbolize the burning bush as seen by Moses on Mount Sinai (Exodus 25).
The Menorah is also a symbol closely associated with the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. According to the Talmud, after the desecration of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, there was only enough sealed (and therefore not desecrated by idolatry) consecrated olive oil left to fuel the eternal flame in the Temple for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days which was enough time to get new oil as well as finish rebuilding the Temple. The Hanukkah Menorah therefore has not seven, but nine candle holders. The four holders on either side are to represent the eight day celebration of the miracle of oil, while the one in the middle, called the Shamash, is used to light the others. While this type of menorah is technically called a Hanukiah, the "menorah of Hanukkah" is sometimes simply called a menorah.
Let's light all the candles in the menorah.

While the Menorah has its roots in Hebrew culture, religion, and lore, the dirty menorah has only recently made its way into the lexicon of sexual parlance. However, it has crossed over to become more secular in nature in that it is not only practiced by those of Hebrew ancestry and faith, but by members of various religions as well as agnostics, and atheists alike; it need not be hetero-specific. It is related to the Dirty Sanchez, the Dirty Rodriguez, and even more so to the Dirty Ash Wednesday, albeit borne of different religious doctrine.

In stark contrast to the Menorah, which bears a total of nine candles, only two participants are required to effect a ‘dirty menorah’, with the male (or one of the males if practiced by a non-hetero couple) serving as a sort of sexual shamash. For eight consecutive days, the ‘shamash’ has anal sex with his partner.

Each day, after having successfully nutted in the recipient’s ass, the shamash places an individual and distinct Hebrew-language character on the forehead of his partner using only his penis to write the character; the ‘ink’ with which the characters are written in this case being cock-borne ass-matter from the shamash’s dick. Contrast with Dirty Ash Wednesday.
“Ah, the dirty menorah…you know, last week I ran into my ex, and when I saw her, I couldn’t help but think of that vacation we took in the Bahamas where, over the course of eight nights, I painted her forehead with Hebrew characters using only my dick...best anal sex of my life, but she wouldn't leave the room.”

The act of shoving a large dildo up a young Jewish girl's ass, pulling it out, licking it and then shoving it into her pussy. Not to be confused with the very popular "golden sponge bath."
Ari and Levana were having nice, clean sex when Ari grabbed Levana's dildo and began Gilding the Menorah.

Instead of just lighting the candles like Hanukkah, you get down and do the dirty while lighting the candles. And then every night you light the damn candles you try a different sex position, makes you think of something fancy instead of the old routine, and every time you fuck you yell "Dirty Menorah" and when you finish you yell it again...Perfect for the boring old Jewish family that do the same shit every year. :)
Try anything you can think of possible, because you can't go wrong with a dirty menorah..;)
