Iran - Medal from SH1344 with Reza Shah and menorah

This one is unexpected.
Unfortunately I don't read neither persian nor hebrew to understand what it is about.

Medal struck in 1966 by the "Council of the Jewish Community' for the 25th regnal year of Muhammad  Reza Shah Pahlavi.
(top legend : 25 years of sultanat of King of Kings Mir Muhammad Reza Pahlavi)
at bottom : " اخبین کلیمیان ایران شهریور  " the jewish brotherhood of Iran , shahrivar 1344"
on reverse the date in hebrew : "rosh hashana 5726"
May be somebody could help for the legend in hebrew over the menorah (the seven-branched candelabrum) ?
( here it is a menorah, the one used for hanukkah has nine branches)

I got a translation from numista.

Lettering:

Translation:
