Torah, like the oil of the lamp, is the source for man's ideals, providing the direction for a meaningful life that connects him with his Creator.

Enlightening, pure and clear, like the oil, the Torah and its mitzvot direct the potential in man to its ultimate purpose. Every Friday eve, as a woman strikes her match, charring the wick while igniting the flame that drinks in the oil of her Shabbat lights, she is drawing down, in a very real and physical way, this light. This is not an elusive light, removed from worldly concerns and dynamics, but an inspiration that imbues the deepest darkness of this physical reality.
It elevates its earthiness and saturates humanity and creation as a whole with a brighter goodness and truer perspective, in harmony with the will of its Creator. Just as the physical lights represent man's soul and being, every mitzvah brings a real spiritual light into this world. The Shabbat candles, however, physically dispel any spiritual darkness or gloom surrounding us. Since they involve physical light, the Shabbat candles, more than any other mitzva , harmonize this vacillating dichotomy between body and soul in the essence of man's being, bringing light and inspiration to the temporality of life.
In all you do, let a spark of holy fire burn within, so that you may fan it into a flame" Baal Shem Tov.
By kindling the Shabbat candles, the woman has the special power to usher in the holiness of Shabbat. Her act of lighting the candle and reciting its blessing draws down the special aura of the holy Shabbat for us all. Hope all is well.

The Jenny Bruce song Comfort is wonderful. What a nice mix of lyrics, music and voice. I like this song too much. It is a sleeping pill for all those who have sleep problem.
The Balanced Blonde Podcast // Soul On Fire
The songwriting is phenomenal, Jenny's voice is beautifully unique, and the production is inspired. Do yourself a favour and buy this record - it will touch you deeply. This CD is amazing. I first heard Jenny Bruce live at a little vegetarian restaurant here in Omaha, and I couldn't help but buy her CD that night. It's turned out to be one of my absolute favorites CDs in all of my collection, and it's always close to my CD player. I could listen to "Comfort", "Home" and "Amsterdam" over and over This CD is a must have.
