LIGHT OF OUR SURVIVORS

Honoring Their Light

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world. 

Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)

The mere presence and participation of Survivors strongly impacts workshop participants. 

As one participant shared, “Making lights alongside Survivors was a once in a lifetime experience for me.” 

TESTIMONIALS

Some evenings when the light is on, I think of my parents.  Other times it inspires me, to move forward to be a light for others (hopefully).  Someday, this lamp will tell my granddaughter why 6 million or 11 million lights should always shine and the important of it.

Anonymous, Holocaust Survivor

The facilitators were wonderful! Nothing we can do can truly honor the 6 Million or the Survivors. Yet, this was as effective and as well-intentioned as anything I’ve seen. I didn’t want the workshop to end.

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.  Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="Learn More" style="outline" shape="square" color="black" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Forlanu.org%2Fhonoring-their-light%2F|title:Honoring%20Their%20Light||" el_class="max-700" css=".vc_custom_1581979987924{padding-right: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;}"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section full_width="stretch_row" content_placement="top" css=".vc_custom_1580334664987{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;background-color: #f8df85 !important;}"][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1580335395427{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1581980188666{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}"]

M.S., an attorney who participated in the very first "Light of Our Survivors" workshop

It was a privilege to be with survivors and the children of survivors and to hear their stories. As a non-Jew, I particularly liked the inclusion of Hebrew in some of the readings. I absolutely love the warm glow of this light in my home. It is a beacon of remembrance for the lost and the glow of hope for the future.

I am ever so grateful for having had the opportunity to participate in the workshop. Thank you so much for providing the space for the survivors and dependents to remember and reflect on something that should never be forgotten.

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.  Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="Learn More" style="outline" shape="square" color="black" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Forlanu.org%2Fhonoring-their-light%2F|title:Honoring%20Their%20Light||" el_class="max-700" css=".vc_custom_1581979987924{padding-right: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;}"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section full_width="stretch_row" content_placement="top" css=".vc_custom_1580334664987{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;background-color: #f8df85 !important;}"][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1580335395427{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1581980188666{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}"]

We are a “Light on to the Nations.” You encouraged us to move forward with creating our own lights…. who knows where that will lead? The sense of being optimistic even during difficult times, while challenging, is something this workshop helped me with.

Honoring Our Survivors

Light of Our Survivors honors Holocaust survivors, their descendants, and the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.  An initiative of 6 Million Lights, its innovative light-making workshops foster conversation and community, as we gather together Holocaust Survivors, their descendants, and a diverse mix from the interfaith community.  We share stories, memories, and wisdom while creating beautiful illuminated paper lamps that serve as luminous reminders of each maker’s intention to share light with the world.  Raye David (Survivor of Auschwitz)[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title="Learn More" style="outline" shape="square" color="black" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Forlanu.org%2Fhonoring-their-light%2F|title:Honoring%20Their%20Light||" el_class="max-700" css=".vc_custom_1581979987924{padding-right: 30px !important;padding-left: 30px !important;}"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_section full_width="stretch_row" content_placement="top" css=".vc_custom_1580334664987{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;background-color: #f8df85 !important;}"][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1580335395427{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/6"][/vc_column][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1581980188666{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}"]

The mere presence and participation of Survivors strongly impacts workshop participants. 

As one participant shared, “Making lights alongside Survivors was a once in a lifetime experience for me.”
