כ״ה בתמוז תשע"א
וְאַתָּה תְּצַוֶּה אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְיִקְחוּ אֵלֶיךָ שֶׁמֶן זַיִת זָךְ כָּתִית--לַמָּאוֹר: לְהַעֲלֹת נֵר, תָּמִיד.
And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. [Shemot-Exodus 27:20]
In Jewish esoteric tradition, the Eternal Flame or Everlasting Light which shines before the Holy Ark of the Covenant is called by its Hebrew name, NER TAMID (נר תמיד). Never extinguished and ever-burning, the NER TAMID symbolizes Eternal Divine Presence.
In the masthead of this shoppe, the two letters seen suspended over the word WITCHCRAFTS are the two forms of the magical Hebrew letter of fire, namely shin - the lower form is the shin of Wisdom (Chochmah), and the upper one is the shin of Understanding (Binah).
In Celtic tradition, the Eternal Sacred Flame is associated with the Goddess Brigid. Among Native American tribes, the People Potowatomi (the specific tribe to which I also belong) are called the Keepers of the Sacred Flame.
In honor of all my ancestors - Jewish, Celtic, Native American, Norse and all those unknown to me - does this deeply lovely NER TAMID Artisan Alchemy™ Kabbalah candle burn.
