ESSAY: Is the Temple Menorah Still in Rome (and Does it Matter)?

Did you ever hear from someone, or read in a publication, that in Rome there are holy objects from the Beit Hamikdash, hidden away somewhere?

Read a Chanukah article by Judah S. Harris to get the answer about the gold Menorah and also think, for a moment or two, about the purpose of the stories we tell ourselves in the context of folklore. Not all stories are historical fact, but they do often reflect on the history of a group of people and lessons or teachings considered important.
