A Menorah Miracle!

A special miracle occurred daily with one of the lights of the Menorah. All 7 branches had the same amount of oil in them, yet when the Kohen came in the morning to clean the Menorah, he would find the middle flame, called the Ner Ma’aravi, still burning, while all the other 6 flames had been extinguished! At that point, the Kohen would clean those 6 branches and let the middle flame continue to burn.
In the late afternoon, when it was time to light the Menorah again for the night, the Kohen would walk in, and lo and behold… the middle flame was still burning! The Kohen would take fire from that flame to light the other 6 wicks. Only after lighting them would he extinguish the middle light. He would then clean it up perfectly and proceed to light this middle flame.
And so, this was the miracle that happened every single day – without fail!
