About our name - Lamplighters.
In the olden days, the lamplighter would walks the streets carrying a flame at the end of a pole. He would go from lamp to lamp to set them alight.
We are taught that each Jewish soul is like a street lamp, ready and waiting to be kindled.
At lamplighters we are on a mission to go out and light up the Jewish souls of other Jews with the light of the Torah (Bible) and Mitzvoth (good deeds). So that they in turn will light up the soul of another.
Our vision is a chain reaction of goodness (Light), lighting up the world, one person at a time.
For the logo i would like to see this idea (of light spreading) depicted in a suggestive / abstract way.
As for the Jewish aspect i would like to see designs that somehow creatively include the first letter of the hebrew alphabet - the letter alef.
One idea i have is a kalidiescope like design of colours with the letter alef included as part of the fragmented shapes. Im also open to other creative ideas.
another idea id like to see explored is a house shape made up of a variety of Jewish objects such as a menorah, candle stick, siddur (prayer book), dreidel, mezuzah, tefillin, torah. (The kind of design where the combination of shapes form the house shape).
One more idea we'd like to see explored is a lightbulb with the first three letters of the hebrew alphabet - alef, beis and gimmel around it.
Also happy for someone to try a modern design using the following three letters of the Hebrew alphabet in this order: Alef, Mem and Saf.
