The Menorah was constructed based on descriptions written in the Torah ; details given by Chazal; and from documents written by Yosef ben Matityahu (zs'l) of the Maccabim.
The weight of the Menorah is approximately half a ton and 45 kg (100 lbs) of it is made from 24 karat gold. It is estimated to be worth 3 million dollars.
