Friends of One More Candle
We invite you to join One More Candle (OMC) by choosing to adopt a memory, and by sharing our website with others.
Shaarey Zedek Synagogue
We are extremely appreciative of Shaarey Zedek Synagogue in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They have graciously agreed to help promote One More Candle (OMC). SZ have accepted and are honouring the adoption of the memories of 397 children who were murdered in the Shoah. While there are 365 days in a year, the addition of Adar II, a leap month in the Hebrew calendar, expands occasionally to 397. Each one of their names will be said daily at minyan services for the year.
SZ is the first synagogue to support One More Candle. They have broken new ground in an interactive and intergenerational memory project.
We have synagogues throughout Canada and the United States committed to the memory of the 1.5 million children. We are always pleased to receive queries from synagogues, faith communities, and individuals throughout the world. One More Candle has provided each synagogue with a comprehensive list of the names to be said for each minyan that they have.
Each child adopted by a member of SZ can add their adopted child’s name to their list of departed loved ones and receive a yahrtzeit reminder annually.
“OMC is a wonderful organization, offering a beautiful opportunity to connect the hearts of the living with those lost in the Shoah.”
