Yellow Candle Project

The Yellow Candle Project 2024 happened on the eve of Yom HaShoah on Sunday 5th May.

Every year, Maccabi GB distributes yellow memorial candles across the Jewish community and beyond in advance of Yom HaShoah. Each Yellow Candle comes with an individual information card, including the name, hometown, as well as place of death and age of a Jewish person who perished during the Holocaust.

The initiative gives individuals and families the opportunity to take part in a personal and moving act of Holocaust remembrance, with Yellow Candle educational resources enabling children and young people to learn about the horrors of the Shoah in a powerful and age-appropriate way.
