A Candle


“A Jew is like a candle,” the Lubavitcher Rebbe once explained to a chassid, “and his task is to light up other Jews.”

The chassid asked, “Rebbe, did you light my candle yet?”

The Rebbe replied, “No, but I have given you the match.  You must now strike it and ignite it yourself.” ~ Chicken Soup to Warm the Neshama
