Rashi quotes a Midrash that through God, the Menorah made itself. What is the message of this Midrash? The verse tells us: And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Aaron and say to him: ‘When you light up the candles…And this is the plan for making the Menorah” First God instructed Aaron to light the candles and only then did he tell him about the Menorah. Our first task is to use the gifts and resources we have to bring light to the world. How we manage to add to those resources – that comes later, and sometimes in mysterious ways. First Aaron committed to lighting the Menorah and then through God the Menorah made itself.
