6 Million Lights is a project that honors the 6 Million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust by putting light into the world. Through innovative light-making workshops that foster conversation and community and in diverse initiatives spanning the life cycle, each participant creates a beautiful illuminated paper lamp that serves as a luminous reminder of its maker’s intention to put light into the world.
Lighting the Jewish Journey
Honoring & sharing our Light
Dispelling Darkness with Light
In 2018, Dr. Moss and Rabbi Steigmann partnered to found OrLanu, a 501(c)(3). “The world needs our light.” OrLanu has several initiatives which illuminate the Jewish journey at various points in the life cycle, but all encourage wisdom-sharing and reflection within a Jewish context.
Orlanu’s 6 Million Lights project unites all of these initiatives through light-making workshops that engage not only Jews but also extend beyond the Jewish community. In all our 6 Million Lights initiatives, participants honor their light and that of fellow participants while putting light into the world. That’s how we honor the memory of the 6 Million.
