  • Yom HaShoah  יום השואה  Yellow Candle Program 
    Holocaust Memorial Day

    Evening of Wednesday April 11th through the Evening of Thursday April 12

It has been seventy-three years since Nazi concentration camps were liberated, and the Holocaust that claimed six million Jewish lives, along with five million others, came to an end. To ensure that our sisters and brothers did not die in vain and that the Holocaust never happens again, TINW Brotherhood will once again join Jews and others throughout North America to honor their memory, and to keep aware of the need for vigilance, by participating in the YOM HASHOAH YELLOW CANDLE PROGRAM. As in the past, we are asking that you help us underwrite the cost of this project. Any funds collected over and above our costs will be donated to THE HOLOCAUST AND HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION CENTER.
