The menorah in the mishkan


"Rav Sheshet asked: The Torah says, ‘He shall arrange it [the menorah in the mishkan] outside the curtain of the edut.’ Does Gd need its light? All through the forty years that the Jews traveled in the wilderness, they traveled only by His light!

"Rather: The menorah is testimony to all who enter the world, that the Shechinah is manifest in Israel."

(Talmud, Shabbat 22b)

Have a great day,
