Harav Ginsburgh explains the three levels of our mission in life: nothingness, light, and name and explains how we can use this to help us cope with changes in what appears to be our mission and purpose in life.

Essential Eights: Olive Oil and the Priestly Garments

Both the olive oil for the menorah and the priestly garments that open this week’s Torah portion have an essential connection to the number eight. What is the inner meaning of this juxtaposition of concepts?
