A menorah for whom?


"Rav Sheshet asked: It is written (Leviticus 24), 'The lights of the Menorah will be arranged beyond the curtain [which covers the Holy of Holies in the Temple].'

"Does Gd require its light?! For forty years, the Jews in the desert traveled only by Gd's own light! Rather, the Menorah is intended as testimony to those who enter this world, that Gd manifests Himself among Israel."

(Talmud, Shabbat 22b)

Have a great day,
