The Basics of Judaism: Jewish Texts: The Olive Branches in Zechariah:
What is the significance of the two olive branches in Zechariah4:11-14?
The branches represent the two Jewish leaders -- the king
and the high priest -- who were anointed with olive oil.
The king (a descendant of David) and the high priest (a descendant
of Aaron) are the two "power sources" that keep the nation going
and keep the Menorah shining brightly.
