Temple Beth Sholom Brotherhood is again providing Yom HaShoah Yellow Candles to the TBS Congregation this year. Wednesday, April 27, 2022, erev Yom HaShoah, is when we light the Yom HaShoah candle. We light this candle in our homes in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. This moment would also be an appropriate opportunity to discuss the Holocaust with your children.
This is the 24th year of our participation in this program. The Yom HaShoah Yellow Candle Program is a joint project of the Men of Reform Judaism and the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, our Conservative brothers.
This event, centered on the lighting of the Yellow Candle, has become an annual event in the homes of many members of our congregation.
As in the past, we ask that you help us underwrite the substantial cost of this project. Funds received, over and above the cost, will go directly to support the youth of the Temple, as does most of the money raised by our TBS Brotherhood. Your support is needed to keep the program going.
By remembering, by doing our part to ensure our future, we celebrate the ongoing life of our people, even as we memorialize lives of those who were destroyed. We appreciate your support of our efforts in this Yom HaShoah commemoration and our ongoing educational programs.
We hope that you and your family will participate on the evening of Wednesday, April 27 th , in this small but meaningful project.
