The Community unites on Yom HaShoah, lighting Yellow Candles to remember and honour those who perished in the Holocaust The Community joined together on Yom HaShoah - the annual day of Holocaust remembrance in the Jewish calendar - as tens of thousands of Yellow Candles were lit to commemorate the lives of those we have lost.
250 members from across the community took part in a Yellow Candle lighting Ceremony during the Yom HaShoah UK Jewish Community National Holocaust Commemoration. If you missed the candle lighting you can watch it below!
The Jewish community gathered together to remember the loss of six million and to pay tribute to the Survivors and Refugees for the remarkable contributions they have made to the Jewish community and wider UK society.
