In the Temple in Jerusalem was a seven-branched menorah.

That is us, the Jewish people.

Each of us is a flame. One flame burns softly. Another burns with a roar. Until seven branches are filled with millions of distinct, unique flames.

All are drawn upwards, all yearning to reunite with their Beloved above.

And that is the work of Aaron the Kohen, the priest of kindness and love:

That every soul should burn its own flame, and not a single one should remain dark or dim.
