Being a Lamp Lighter
Aaron the High Priest was required
to kindle the lamps on the Menorah in the Temple
until the flame arises by itself השלהבת עולה מאליה.
All of us are asked to be “lamp lighters”
trying to illuminate our dark surroundings
until the flame of faith rises by itself
and burns brightly,
a potent meditation for the
Seventh Day of Hanukah,
as well as every day of the year.
