BZD Yellow Candles 2024

The BZD Yellow Candles are a simple, practical tool for the Jewish community and beyond, to remember Jewish victims of the Holocaust on the occasion of Yom HaShoah.

The candle will be lit on the eve of Yom HaShoah (May 5, 2024). Every candle has a QR code to scan that carries the name of someone who perished in the Shoah, many of them children. People are encouraged to take a photograph of the candle lighting with the name they are lighting it for and post it on social media using the hashtag #YellowCandleBZD.

The Baltimore Zionist District is proud to sponsor these candles, providing them to the community at no cost. Candles can be picked up at the following times:

Wednesday, May 1: BZD office, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Thursday, May 2: BZD office, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Friday, May 3: Market Maven, 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM
