The Temple Menorah was made of pure gold and was lit with pure olive oil. Its radiant light symbolized the Jewish nation’s duty to spread the light of Torah. The purest elements of gold and oil were used to impress upon the people that one must have pure intentions to come closer to God and to influence the nations of the world for the sake of Heaven. The Hebrew root for light, ‘or’ is the basis of many Hebrew names. O-ra, and Me-i-ra for girls, and Ya-eer and U-ree for boys, are just a few!

A leading proponent of educating people about the potential threat of Nibiru said last week that the dwarf star some believe is poised to destroy two-thirds of the world’s population in anticipation of the End of Days is the cause of recent extreme weather events.
This particular Menorah was chosen to stand in front of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, because it appears famously on the Arch of Titus in Rome, the relic depicting the destruction of the Temple and the looting of its holy objects. The symbolic message is clear: Am Yisrael Chai – the Nation of Israel lives!
