Each year the Men's Club distributes Yom HaShoah memorial candles to congregants. We will continue the program in advance of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, which begins at sundown on April 11, 2018.
Please call or email the office if you wish to have a candle reserved for you. Candles are mailed to most members outside of Hyde Park. For most Hyde Parkers, please pick up your candle from the table in the Rodfei Zedek synagogue atrium. The candles have labels with congregants' names attached. Some Hyde Parkers will receive their candle by mail.
There is no charge for a candle. Congregants can make a voluntary donation to the Men's Club youth scholarship fund, if they want to make a contribution. The revenue raised through this and other activities is used to support youth activities, scholarships for summer programs, and educational programs for the Congregation.
