Get Your ‘Hannukah Forever’ Stamp

Sending holiday greetings to loved ones for Hannukah?

Skip the e-card. The U.S. Postal Service has just issued a “Hannukah Forever” stamp showing — what else? — a lit menorah.

Created by Steven Bronstein, a blacksmith from Marshfield, VT, the menorah depicted on the stamp took almost a week to make. Bronstei had to forge 20 feet of wrought iron to get the desired effect. Nine lighted beeswax candle top each of the branches.

“Hannukah,” (“dedication” in Hebrew) is spelled out at the top of the stamp in yellow letters, designed by Ethan Kessler of Bethesda, MD. Check it out here.

If you need ideas for post cards, look no further. We’ve got you covered with these. Now you have no excuse: write to your mom.
