#YellowCandle campaign trending number 1 on Twitter

The Community unites on Yom HaShoah, lighting Yellow Candles to remember and honour those who perished in the Holocaust.

Every year, Maccabi GB distributes yellow memorial candles across the Jewish community and beyond in advance of Yom HaShoah. Each Yellow Candle comes with an individual information card, including the name, hometown, as well as place of death and age of a Jewish person who perished during the Holocaust.

On the night, #Yellow Candle trended first on Twitter, with people from around the world posting photos of their lit Yellow Candle on social media.
