Eternal Light

by Vered Harris
 Recently the 8th grade class from Heritage Hall came to Temple B’nai Israel as part of their “Explore Days.” These two days offer the students exposure to some of the diverse cultures that make up our city. In each of the three groups that visited our main sanctuary a student noted the abstract sculpture above our ark. The ark holds the Torah scroll, the sculpture above is a light fixture called the Eternal Light. Just about every Jewish sanctuary has an Eternal Light. The students asked if they all look the same. When we went into the second prayer space at the Temple, the chapel, the students were able to see a modern rendition of the same concept: a fixture that perpetually puts forth light and can take nearly any form. Eternal lights may look radically different from one another, but they share a common purpose.

The Eternal Light, of course, can be viewed as a metaphor applicable to every person regardless of where or if we pray: what do we put above even our most important stories; what do we regard as eternally guiding principles that enable us to see more clearly even when times are dark?

The Eternal Light (in Hebrew it is called a Ner Tamid) can be a reminder of that which is bigger than us: an external guide that provides comfort, perspective, and hope.  READ MORE
