The 5th Light: Illuminating the Darkest Places

Gevaldt. So it's raining at last, thank G-d, in the Land of Israel. The deadly Carmel forest fire is finally extinguished, the Israelis who died in the fire are being buried and today our Haifa Police Chief Ahuva Tomer died, a heroine who perished trying to save her people from the burning flames.

The Lubavicher Rebbe says about the 5th Light of Chanukah:

"The fifth Hanukkah candle signifies great darkness because this day cannot fall on the Holy Sabbath. And through the Hanukkah candles, the greatest (spiritual) darkness of the world is illuminated. And for this reason, the potential of Hanukkah comes to fruition specifically through the fifth candle, which illuminates the darkest night- the night which never has the light of Shabbos. And this is the function of every Jew, in every place -- to illuminate the darkest place."

That's what we're talking about, people. The darkest of the dark can only be illuminated by the bravest fire - the one that will go where not even the light of Shabbos has ever shined.
