This past January, we commemorated the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. As the years go by, fewer of our survivors are here to retell their stories and act as direct witnesses to that horror of the Holocaust.
Our responsibilities include our personally participating in remembrance ceremonies to help teach the next generations of that period of our history. Men’s Club welcomes your attendance at Anshe Emet’s Yom HaShoah Commemoration program, Monday evening, April 20th, at 6:30 pm. Our guest speaker is Father John Pawlikowski, who will discuss the Christian communities’ understanding of the Holocaust and their relationship to the Jewish communities’ continuing commitments to further enlightening our children and grandchildren about that time period.
Yellow candles are being distributed to Men’s Club members in the mail to light as memorials that evening at home and will also be available at the program itself. We encourage your personal contributions for these candles.
In commemoration of Yom HaShoah, the Anshe Emet Men’s Club is selling memorial candles through the FJMC Yellow Candle Programs. Profits from the sales of the candles are used to support future Yom HaShoah programming at Anshe Emet. Yellow candles may be purchased for $18 each below or at the event where they will be distributed. Candles will also be mailed upon request. Please limit purchase to two candles per order.
