Yellow Candle Project


This year Yellow Candles can only be purchased through the Yellow Candle Project and not through the shul. 


The Yellow Candle Project is managed by Maccabi GB, is a practical and informal educational tool to remember Jewish Holocaust victims on Yom HaShoah, and broaden participants’ understanding of the Holocaust, in the safe space of their homes. 

Yellow Candle, a card with the name, age, date, and place of death of someone who perished in the Holocaust is enclosed. Participants are invited to share images of their lit candles on social media on the eve of Yom HaShoah, thereby creating a modern-day collective communal memorial.

The 2024 project will see the continuation of ‘Remembrance to Renewal,’ where each Yellow Candle will come with Dwarf Sunflower Seeds. We are encouraging the community to keep their empty Yellow Candle Tin, plant a seed for the future, to help us all remember the past.

Each Yellow Candle costs £3.50, alongside a Postage and Packaging cost of £2.25, for up to five candles. 

Please note that, to ensure we can meet the demands of the community, there is a maximum of five Yellow Candles per order.

If you require more Yellow Candles, please contact us

We are incredibly grateful to The Association of Jewish Refugees, Betty Messenger Charitable Foundation, Charles Wolfson Charitable Trust, The Jewish Chronicle, We Are All Making A Difference, Yad Vashem UK Foundation and Yom HaShoah UK for supporting the Yellow Candle Project.

Please consider making a donation to the Yellow Candle Project to ensure that this important initiative can continue for many years to come. To add a donation to your order, just add your preferred amount below to your basket. For donations of other amounts, please click here.
