Correct. I was mistaken. There was one menorah in the mishkan.

comment What are the merits and weaknesses of the various available printed editions of Talmud Bavli?
Thank you so much for your detailed overview. This is extremely helpful in helping to know what one should be looking for in the various available editions. That last comment by Rav S.Z. Auerbach is funny, but a good point. It is a lot to digest. How often will I really delve into "all" the meforshim? Regarding typos, I heard that the Shas Vilna Hachadash published by Mesoret HaSHas and Z. Berman has been found to have mistakes. I am not sure about this, and I am hoping to find someone who can comment on this version.

Thanks for adding the Talman edition. I would love to have a version that is newly typeset (not photocopied) as well as a version that has good research behind it (correction of errors, etc...) That does not have to be academic per se, but I am not opposed to that. I am concerned due to posts such as this one: onthemainline.blogspot.com/2011/03/…
