An 18th-century menorah is going on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. An inscription on the 60-foot-high menorah suggests that the menorah was used at a synagogue in Eastern Europe, probably in Poland. The menorah, which will be lit Monday at the museum, is on loan from the Michael and Judy Steinhardt Collection. The menorah will remain at the museum until Jan. 6.
