This year, Masorti Judaism is bringing the Yellow Candle Project to the UK for the first time.
The purpose of this project is to remember individual victims of the Shoah. We hope as many people as possible will light a candle for a particular victim who died in the Holocaust.
The yellow colour of the candles recalls the yellow stars which Jews in Nazi controlled Europe were forced to wear. Each yellow Yahrzeit candle provided will be accompanied by the name of a person from the Yad Vashem records.
Yellow candles will be available in shul until Yom Hashoah. If you run into problems, please contact Marc Herman, firstname.lastname@example.org, and he'll ensure you get one.
