#Omens&Symbols . . . The ‘seven openings’ in the head.

“There are seven openings in the head — two ears, two eyes, two nostrils and the mouth. These seven orifices correspond to the seven branches of the Menorah, the Candelabra of the Temple. Much like the Menorah that can only be fed “pure oil” to illuminate the Temple, the same is true with our own inner Menorah. In order for us to shine brightly, illuminating our path and giving light and warmth to others, we need to ensure that the ‘oil’ we intake through our senses and use to illuminate our countenance is pure and refined.”

Rav DovBer Pinson
