From the beginning, the symbol of Temple Judea Mizpah has always been the flame – lighting our path and guiding us from our past into our future. This flame represents the warm glow of our Sabbath candles and the inspiration we draw from our Chanukah lamp. It is the “Ner Tamid” - the eternal light above the ark in our sanctuary, the comforting reminder of God’s presence in our midst.
