On sabbath, the temple/synagogue fire/lamp must be lit. Jewish priests and congregation were/are not allowed to "do work" on the sabbath, which included igniting any fire. They had a goy (non-jew) light it. Per a post at Quora, Elvis Presley lit that fire in the local synagogue, until it was determined that he was Jewish through his mother's side, then he couldn't do it anymore.
