Parshas Beha’alosecha 5782

In this week’s Parsha we read that Aharon Hakohein was commanded to light the Menorah in the Mishkan.

Lighting the Menorah was a ritual that Aharon and his descendants were required to do. Both throughout the time we had a Mishkan and later during the times we had the Batei Mikdash.

Rav Yissochar Frand Shlita brings the Ramban that says that the Menorah was later lit by Klal Yisroel because of the Chanuka Miracle even after the Beis Hamikdash was destroyed. This all because of the heroism of the descendants of Aharon who were the Chasmonaim known famously for the Chanuka story.

Aharon Hakohein and his descendants were known for their dedication on behalf of Klal Yisroel and Hashem wanted to honor Aharon and his family by making sure that they would light the Beautiful Chanuka Menorah and later on the whole Klal Yisroel would follow suit on Chanuka every single year.

By speaking about this Beautiful Mitzva may it light up our Shabbos and give us a beautiful summer!
