Judenstern, Mid 20th - Early 21st Century
Hanging brass plated Judenstern (shabbat light) with hanging ratchet, eight oil fonts on base and drip pan. It is a replica of a 19th century lamp and does not appear to have been used. Liese Henle Rothman purchased the lamp to honor the 19th Century German Jewish tradition of lighting the Shabbat lamp. Judensterns are designed to burn for an entire day and night because kindling fore was forbidden on the Sabbath.
