Review of Fine, The Menorah

BOOK REVIEW A History of the Menorah (MARJORIE INGALL, New York Times).
From the Bible to Modern Israel

By Steven Fine
Illustrated. 279 pp. Harvard University Press. $29.95.

This richly illustrated academic study begins with an image straight out of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” ...
The review tries irritatingly to sound hip, but the book sounds very good.
