Tzav Text message

Parashat Tzav (Command)

This section describes a special type of fire that was present in the tabernacle.  This fire must burn at all times, and may not be extinguished.
In fact these are the first words of the parasha.
Immediately after that, the Torah tells us that the priest had to clean the ashes (dirt) that were left in the altar.
We can learn a beautiful lesson from this. If we want to keep the fire burning all the time, we need to make holy even the most mundane activities. If we can find G-d even when we take out the trash, we always be able to keep the fire burning.

In memory of my beloved mother and teacher Miriam Rachel bat Israel Itzchak Z"L
