The Eternal Light

The Eternal Light

E-mail

In many synagogues there is an Eternal Light (Ner Tamid), a continuously burning lamp, which is situated above the Ark. The eternal light is a symbol of the "western lamp," the perpetual light which constantly burned in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. It also serves as a symbol of G-d's unwavering presence and of our undying faith in G-d.
