Increasing the light

Increasing the light

5th Night of Chanukah


"A mitzvah is compared to a candle and the Torah is light."

We should always aspire to increase our level of Torah and Mitzvot. If we did one good deed yesterday, let us try to increase and do more today. Like the Chanukah candles, we are meant to add light every day.

The Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Chassidic movement, said: "The Hebrew word for light is 'Or' - the numerical equivalent of 'raz' (inner secret). Whoever knows the 'secret' contained in every thing can bring illumination."
