Disc 6, Program 24

Event Date: 14 Adar I 5741 - February 18, 1981

G-d is the ‘Great Luminary’ Who illuminates and provides for heaven, earth and all his creations. We, who receive everything from the Great Luminary, must do everything we can to become ‘Small Luminaries,’ a reflection of G-d Himself.

Although you are small in comparison to the world as a whole, still, you are a Luminary – who can light up heaven and earth through Torah and Mitzvos.

Although we are quantitatively small compared to the rest of the world, in reality, Jewish children guide the world and bring redemption to the entire world.
