Flames of Chanukah and flames of the Altar

Flames of the Altar

Very important concept, mentioned in many places in Gemora and practical Halacha, specifically in tractate Brachot 55a:

ברכות נה ע”א) שבזמן שאין מזבח, שולחנו של אדם מכפר עליו)

Since the Beit Hamikdash (our Temple) has been destroyed,  our tables became like the Altar that attone for us.
