1993 Candle-lit Yizkor Service




Club Name(s): 


Temple Beth Haverim’s Men’s Club observed Erev Yom Hashoah with a candle-lit Yizkor service in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered during World War II, with an Auschwitz-Birkenau survivor in attendance. A Catholic priest expressed deepest sympathies on behalf of the hearts of humanity.  Representatives from the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Beit HaShoah (Museum of Tolerance) were also present, and excerpts from the film Genocide were shown. Finally, the Men’s Club donated a more than 300-year old Holocaust Torah to the children of the congregation. In conjunction with this program, the Men’s Club raised more than $4,500 in contributions through the Yellow Candle Program.
