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.

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

The workshop was very moving and it was a bonding experience. You handled difficult material with delicacy and dignity. The closing ceremony dignified the process, allowing us to share our intentions. The workshop was a gift that was deeply appreciated…a reminder that actions, small or large, have consequences.
