We appreciate your contribution to the YIZKOR project, but also ask that you light a candle in memory of the six million Jewish men, women and children who perished in the Holocaust, or simply display your memorial hexagon plate on those occasions when Yizkor is recited throughout the year.
If you have not done so as yet, please download one of the hexagon TEMPLATES and use it in your personal remembrances of those who perished in the Shoah.
Since a cornerstone of the YIZKOR project is its commitment to building Jewish identity and to ensuring continuity through its Legacy programs, we encourage to review the Legacy Resource materials as well and pass them on.

LIVING BELOW THE POVERTY LINE
"...while we have lost many survivors, there are
survivors who are living into their 80's and 90's and have lived beyond their savings. Current data (report pending) from the Jewish Federation system in Los Angeles shows that about half (almost 50%) the Holocaust survivors are living at or below the
poverty line and struggling to afford basic needs on a daily basis. Tragically this
tracks national data published in 2002.
