Is Matisyahu this desperate that he needs FM to promote him?!

B

B: Resembles relief on Arch of Titus.

B is for bluster

B

A

B"H

C because the Rebbe with Rambam as his source said so.

By the way-- Shmarya A looks more like C than B.

even for free, i will not go .

bit of a trick question...

"A" is the oldest known image but it seems to closely resemble something like what is seen in "B" except that "B" lacks a tripod base.
however if one believes a dead guy is moshiach, then despite "A" and numerous other depictions which show "B" as what the menorah looked like, the correct answer is "C".

seems like C bcuz its the way rashi writes the menorah looked like must be answer

C

c based on rambam

A. I don't live in NY though, so this was just for fun.

I was googling for a picture of the Arch of Titus, and lo and behold, look what I found?

You know if you look at the Arch of Titus, those Jews who were forcibly carrying the Menorah and other stuff from the Beis Hamikdash - they don't look very frum. I mean, they have long hair, they are not wearing yarmulkas, they are wearing short skirts (!) and sandles. What frum Jew looks like that?!

Those mini-skirs they are wearing are a real shonda. Didn't they know the halachos of beged isha?

And if nothing else, they should at least be wearing yarmulkas. I mean, they look like goyim!

And these were from the generation from the Beis Hamikdash no less. No wonder it was destroyed!

If they would have worn 1930's American hats, or 1730's European fur hats and coats, then maybe the Beis Hamikdash would still be standing. But look at them. Hashem had no choice but to send them to galus!

B"H

Shmarya - if A is some kind of a proof of something then why does it have only 5 branches. Oh yeah.. before the rabbis messed with Judaism their were only 5 days in a week. They added the others.

C according to Rambam's drawing.
