HAPPY HANUKKAH TO ALL OF THE LOYAL READERS OF THE ROGUE JEW! EVERY NIGHT OF HANUKKAH, I WILL BE POSTING A VIRTUAL MENORAH ALONG WITH THE BLESSING LIGHTING THE CANDLES.

shehecheyanu v'kiyimanu v'higi'anu laz'man hazeh. (Amein)

Is the Menorah pictured more similiar to the "original" than the more fork like Menorahs more commonly used in the media now?

Menorahs come in all shapes and sizes...The original, is more forked like, as in the common pic used by the mainstream media.
