A disciple once asked: “Rabbi, what is a Jew’s task in this world?

The Rebbe answered: “The Jew is a lamp-lighter.  In olden days, there was a person in every town who would go around igniting the gas street-lights with a flame he carried at the end of a long pole.  The lamps were there in readiness just waiting to be lit!  This is the sacred task of the Jew; our purpose is to ignite fire in the holy human spirit.

First you must start with yourself, becoming refined in character; then you will begin to see others as sources of light just waiting to be ignited.”
