(2) 4 bright yellow LEDs (BG Micro $0.20)
(1) Yellow LED right angle (BG Micro $.012)
(1) SPST pushbutton (BG Micro $0.10)
(1) CR2032 with legs (BG Micro $0.65)
(1) Short length of wire
Instant bond cyanoacrylate glue
Step 1. Bond the two 4-bright yellow LED bars together with glue.
Step 3. Bond the yellow LED right angle to the top of the joined LED bars.
Step 4. Fold and solder the LED right angle’s cathode to the bar’s cathode run. Likewise, fold and solder the LED right angle’s anode to the bar’s anode run.
Step 5. Snip off two adjacent legs (i.e., on the same side of the switch) from the SPST switch. The switch should now have two legs. Bond the SPST switch to one end of the joined LED bars. Solder one leg of the switch to the LED’s cathode run.
Step 6. Bond the CR2032 battery to the bottom of the joined LED bars. Solder the positive (+) leg to the anode run.
Step 8. Press the button to illuminate the LED Menorah.—Dave Prochnow
