It is estimated that half of all Shoah survivors still alive today are in need of some kind of financial support. You can help support those in need through the YIZKOR project and help honor the memory of those who perished in the Shoah - those whose names we know and those whose names we do not know. The YIZKOR project has included a unique giving opportunity where you can also honor the memory of survivors who have since passed. Their names, along with those who perished in the Shoah will be scrolled on the Virtual Memorial Tribute Wall.
Each $6.00 donation to the YIZKOR project is recognized by not one, but two hexagons that are placed on the Virtual Memorial Tribute Wall. The wall consists of a series of tessellating hexagons and which together create a wall of Jewish stars. Each hexagon, with its six points, reflects a duality of symbolism, representing both the six million Jewish victims of the Shoah, as well as six individual victims...six memories. The transformation of the tessellating hexagons into contiguous Jewish Stars is a testimony to our unity and continuity, to Am Yisroel Chai, to K'lal Yisroel. Because we do not know the names of millions of Shoah victims, the second hexagon will be placed on the Memorial Wall in memory of all those Jewish men, women and children whose names we do not know.
Tribute Hexagons-Remembering Those Whose Names We Do Not Know. We do not know all of their names, but we remember them nonetheless...we must remember them all. Not all of us lost loved ones in the Holocaust, but we can still remember and honor the memory of those who perished by performing charitable acts on their behalf...it is the essence of Yizkor and of helping to elevate the souls of those who are no longer with us by remembering. There may be no one left to remember them, except for us.
Remembering Those Whose Names We Do Know. For each donation made in memory of specific named individuals, tribute hexagons will be placed on the virtual memorial wall. In addition, we will also place an number of hexagons to remember those whose names we do not know.
Remembering The Survivors Who Are No Longer With Us. The YIZKOR project is pleased to announce a new giving opportunity to honor those who survived, but who have since passed. May their memory be for a blessing.
