Please join us on Friday, April 21 at 6:30 for our annual Yom HaShoah service and speaker.  Temple member Bob Sender will tell the story of returning to his mother’s hometown of Bullay, Germany.  Last June, Bob traveled with his wife, Ellen, and daughter, Julie, to Bullay to lay stolpersteine in front of the house where Bob's mom grew up until age 11; when she, her brother and parents fled Nazi Germany and settled in Erie, PA.  A List of Those Who Perished in the Holocaust Many at Temple Emanu-El have family members who perished in the Holocaust. The Holocaust Committee has compiled a list of these family members. This is a perfect opportunity for younger members to ask their older relatives more about their family history and get those names. If you have names of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers or sisters that you would like to see added to this list for use during Yom HaShoah, please either e-mail Wendy Lubin at or call the temple office (973) 992-5560. YELLOW CANDLES to be lit at home on April 23. Every year in April or May, Temple Emanu-El observes Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. This year we light the candles on the evening of April 23. They are the yellow yahrzeit candles in memory of the millions of Jews who perished in the Holocaust. The yellow color symbolizes the Jewish star that had to be worn by concentration camp inmates. The purpose of the yellow candles and other Yom HaShoah programs is to Never Forget the tragedy of the Holocaust such that it never happens again. Thank you to the many temple families who through their generous support make this important program possible. You can help honor those who perished by making a contribution that will help purchase these candles. If you would like a Yom HaShoah candle, please visit the temple office to pick one up. If you are unable to come in person, please call the office at 992-5560 so that a candle may be mailed to you.
