Shine a Little Light ✡ “Candlestick of Pure Gold” – ISRAEL365

And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold:
of beaten work shall the candlestick be made,
even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops,
and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it.

וְעָשִׂיתָ מְנֹרַת זָהָב טָהוֹר מִקְשָׁה תֵּעָשֶׂה הַמְּנוֹרָה יְרֵכָהּ וְקָנָהּ גְּבִיעֶיהָ כַּפְתֹּרֶיהָ וּפְרָחֶיהָ מִמֶּנָּה יִהְיוּ

שמות כה:לא

Shabbat Inspiration

The original menorah was created by Moses for the tabernacle during the Israelites’ sojuorn through the desert and was lit by Aaron the Priest, Moses’s brother. When King Solomon built the Holy Temple, he too instructed artisans to create a menorah which was lit by the High Priest of the generation. As instructed by God, the menorahs were made of pure gold, an emphasis that all vessels used to serve God should be whole and refined. Today, people all over the world light a very special menorah, called a Chanukiah (kha-nu-kee-ah), during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. The message of the holiday is that in a world of darkness, it just takes one small light to make everything seem brighter. Spread the inspirational message of the Hanukkah festival by lighting your very own Hanukkah menorah for eight nights.

Today’s Israel Photo

After consulting scripture and numerous Rabbis, the Third Temple Institute created a pristine menorah identical to the way God instructed Moses in the Bible. Today, the menorah stands proud on the stairs down to the Western Wall in Jerusalem, awaiting the day when it will once again be used in the service of God.
