The Yellow CandleTM was created in 1981 by Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs in order to keep alive the memory of the Six Million who perished in the Shoah. The Candle is modeled after a traditional Jewish memorial Yahrzeit candle that burns for 24 hours during periods of mourning, and on the Yahrzeit anniversary of a family member. The candle’s yellow wax serves to remind us of the yellow arm band which Jews were forced to wear during the Nazi regime.
In the next few weeks, Beth El volunteers will prepare Yellow Candle packages for pickup by or mailing to all member families.
