This year one will read the Torah portion of Tetzaveh and the special designated Torah reading for the Shabbat prior to Purim, known as Shabbat Zachor, together.
Rabbeinu Yehuda Aryeh DiModina (Yid Hakadosh) in another year when this happened would say: “Parshas Zachor is read on the week of Parshas Tetzaveh. Why? Because Amalek’s entire goal was to ‘cool off’ the burning enthusiasm of the Jewish people and cause them to lose focus. Tetzaveh begins with lighting the Menorah, when we ignite and inflame our passion for Hashem and His Torah. What better time to heat up the coldness and wipe out Amalek?”
Now here's my question: How does the Menorah become a way to wipe out Amalek and a tool which helps us not to 'cool off'?
How is it that the Menorah helps one to ignite and inflame one's passion in order that one loses his or her coldness or protect one from even becoming 'cold' in the first place? How can a Menorah help me wipe out Amalek in my life?
