Halacha - 7 branched menora
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

The Pischei Teshuva in Yoreh Deah 141:12 quotes the Tiferes l'Moshe that if a non-Jew manufactured a 7 branched Menorah, one is allowed to use it. The Mekor Mayim Chaim concurs, however he cites a dissenting opinion that there may be an Issur d'Rabbanan that people may suspect he made i thimself, which would be ab Issur d'Oraisa. However, the Maharam Shick on Mitzva 39 disputes this, and suggests that using such a Menorah should be Assur Min HaTorah.

In conclusion, I'm not sure, but it would appear that there are grounds to be lenient.
