Lamps appear in the Torah and other Jewish sources as a symbol of “lighting” the way for the righteous, the wise, and for love and other positive values with positive spiritual meaning. In the time of the Bible, replica Oil Lamps were used for both domestic purposes and for many spiritual rituals in Synagogues and prayer gatherings.
“There I shall cause pride to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.” (Psalms 132:16). “When you set the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lamp stand (menorah).” (Numbers 8: 1 -4).
“A man’s soul is the lamp of God, which searches the chambers of one’s innards.” (Proverbs 20:27) “And you shall command the people of Israel that they bring to you pure beaten olive-oil for the light, that a lamp may be set to burn continually”.
The oil lamp and its light also became important ritualistic articles with the further development of Jewish culture and its religion. “A lamp is called a lamp, and the soul of man is called a lamp.” (Babylonian Talmud, Shabbat 30B). “For a commandment is a lamp and the Bible is light; and reproving discipline is the way of life.” (Proverbs 6:23).
