The Eternal, Inner Flame

The fire of the Altar must not go out.

Leviticus 6:2

The Altar fire that was kept burning throughout the day and night was kindled during the day.

The Altar alludes to the Jewish heart. Even when we find ourselves in situations of spiritual darkness, we must keep the Divine fire of enthusiasm for G-d, His Torah, and His commandments, always burning in our hearts.
