Miri demonstrates how one little candle puts a lot of power into the hands of one little girl. Or is it really just one little girl?

Shabbat Candle Power

Shabbat Candle Power

E-mail

People look for deep things in high places. Like lofty mountaintops and profound philosofizicationing. But the Infinite Light is simple. And so it is found in the simplest of places.

Like this little girl lighting a candle. Looks pretty innocent, right? But the Kabbalist will tell you that this little girl is the sefira of Malchut bringing the light of the innermost of Chochmah into the created worlds of Briah, Yetsirah and Assiah. And that innermost light is the same as the innermost of the Ancient of Days, a.k.a. the Hidden Light of the Seven Days of Creation which is in turn the innermost of the Infinite Light--meaning The Essence. Now we're getting heavy. Simple=heavy. Get it?

The main point is: Wanna impact the world big time? Get Kabbalistic. Get a little girl to light a candle. There's a lot more power in that little candle than in all the philosofications of your entire library.

animation mistake
notice how when Miri sais "Koydesh" and the mother puts hur hands up, her necklace suddenly disappeares!

Besides for that, it's a really cute video. I love Miri's little voice

Georgous :)
I think the 5th sentence is "Now this is a time when.."

I love the feeling that even though my Mum is gone, she's still there with me on Friday night :)

still don't understand the 5th sentence....
Could somebody help me out please?
right after 'the candles - they get there first' and before 'when i'm lighting candles with my Mom'

Thanks.

PS: Loved the video! Especially when Miri bursts into a nigun (and you can hear her clapping too) :)
