The Jewish Congregation of Oak Ridge (JCOR) and the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church (ORUUC) have
partnered together to study the Holocaust and to conduct a Holocaust Memorial Service. The Service
will be held from 3:00 to 4:00 pm in the JCOR Sanctuary, 101 W. Madison Lane in Oak Ridge, on April
15th. There will be a candle lighting ceremony conducted by Mira Kimmelman, as well as song,
readings, and prayers. The Holocaust Memorial Service is a community service sponsored by the Oak
Ridge Interfaith Partnership and the public is encouraged to attend. The Oak Ridge Interfaith Partnership
is a new community organization based out of ORUUC and is designed to bring people from different
religious backgrounds together so that we can educate, eliminate prejudice, and build a stronger
community.

The Oak Ridge Chapter of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs, led by Al Good, will have
yellow memorial candles that will be available to attendees. The candle is modeled after a traditional Jewish
memorial Yahrzeit candle that burns for 24 hours during periods of mourning and on the anniversary of
death. After the ceremony these candles can be taken home and lighted in memory of the six million Jews
who perished in the Holocaust.
