Chanukah stamp

Chanukah stamp

The United States Post Office offers a new Chanukah design featuring a photograph of a menorah with nine lit candles. The menorah was designed by Lisa Regan of the Garden Deva Sculpture Company in Tulsa, Okla., and photographed by Ira Wexler of Braddock Heights, Md. Carl T. Herrman of North Las Vegas, Nev., was the art director.

All 35 million stamps are available in sheets of 20.

The 2009 Hanukkah stamp is the third U.S. issuance to commemorate the holiday. In 1996, the Postal Service issued its first Chanukah stamp, which featured a stylized illustration of a menorah. A design featuring an ornate dreidel followed in 2004.
