UPCOMING EVENTS
The Yellow Candle Program was created to preserve the memories of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, CSK has a supply of candles and is distributing them to our members. 

The candle should be lit on the eve of Yom HaShoah, Wednesday evening, April 7, 2021. The candle will stay lit for 24 hours. 

*You can pick up your candle from the CSK office
between now and Wednesday, April 7,
between 9:30-4:30 Monday-Thursday, and 9:30-12:30 on Friday.
 
If you feel that keeping this remembrance program as an ongoing event is an important part of never forgetting what happened, a donation for the purchase of next year’s candles would be appreciated.
to make your donation for the “Yellow Candle Program”.
