‘When you light up the lamps, opposite the face of the Menorah shall the seven lamps give light.'” A Menorah has no face – no front or back – so what does the face of the Menorah mean? Rashi explains that “the face of the Menorah” refers to the middle candle and all the candles faced it. R. Jacob T. Mecklenburg explains that the word for “face” is panim and is related to the word penimi, “internal.” Thus, the face of the Menorah can mean the most internal part – the middle – of the Menorah. Each word of the Hebrew tongue contains untold lessons – how interesting that the word for “internal” and the word for “face” are related. Just as our faces broadcast how we are feeling, so too can a smile change how we feel on the inside.
