Video - Best Practices to Build a Successful Yellow Candle Program - 2020
Best Practice #1:
The FJMC Yellow Candle website, www.yellowcandles.org, has lists of NAMES OF CHILDREN who were murdered during the Holocaust. Include their names as part of your Yellow Candle remembrance program.
During the Holocaust, the Nazis and their collaborators murdered over 1.5 million Jewish children under the age of 16. Personalize each family’s observance of Yom HaShoah by providing every family with the name and homeland of a young victim who may have no surviving relatives to light a candle in his or her memory.
Another way to include children’s names is to mail merge them into the Yellow Candle Meditation letter. Numerous Yellow Candle Committees – who have used the Holocaust children merged meditation – have experienced an increase in donations from synagogue families with children.
The FJMC website has templates for Avery Labels, mail merged lists and sample meditation prayers ready to use.
