    Hello.

    Please, enlighten me about this sentence:
    "עשינו לך מנורה בימי משה, וכבתה"
    "[...?] light [like in] days of Moyshe, and extinguish it.".

    Is "עשינו לך" some kind of expression?

    Thank you.

    It's not an expression.

    "We made you a Menorah in the days of Moses, and/but it was extinguished."

    BTW, it "Moshe" not "Moyshe".
