The Torah Parsha Behaaalotecha begins with lighting the Menorah, literally “raising up the lights”. In that spirit we did 6 short segments on Facebook Live about light as a metaphor in Jewish thought and practice. 

(1) Raise up the lights! 

(2) A little light dispels much darkness

(3) The Ner Talmid eternal flame, in the synagogue, in the Jerusalem Temple and in our souls

(4) We don’t lose by sharing light!

(5) A Chassid is a Lamplighter

(6) Symbolism of the Temple Menorah and the Chanukah Menorah
