The Yellow Candle Program presents a valuable opportunity for you to model the ritual of lighting a yartzheit candle with your family and friends, as well as remember, by their name, a child who was murdered in the Shoah.
Men's Clubs. The program provides the Men's Club (or other participating group) an educational purpose and a significant project upon which to focus. The program is an excellent vehicle for training its members and cultivating volunteers.
Synagogues. The program benefits the synagogue because it unites the congregation through an inter-age effort and provides a focus for Yom HaShoah programming.
Communities. The program benefits the community by bringing the resources that Men's Clubs have at their disposal to aid and assist community observances and to make the public more aware of the lessons of the Holocaust.
Charities. Yellow Candle programs can be a source of funding for other meaningful programs related to Yom HaShoah. Some clubs target funds for local Holocaust memorials, libraries, gardens, Holocaust Museum trips and scholarships for educational summer programs.
