ore than 1.5 million children, under the age of 18, were murdered during the Nazi extermination rampage through Europe known as the Shoah or Holocaust. So complete was the devastation that most left behind no family members able to recite the Jewish memorial Kaddish prayer in their behalf, as called for in Jewish tradition.

Remember A Child has undertaken a program that will allow dedicated Jews to fulfill this mitzvah by committing, to the best of their ability, to recite the Kaddish and light a Yahrzeit candle in memory of one particular murdered child during the four Yizkor services plus during the Yom HaShaoh observance each year.

Would you consider becoming a participant in this effort to keep the memory of these “lost children” alive?

There is no cost. Only your willingness to fulfill this important mitzvah. Any Jew of Bar or Bat Mitzvah age or older is invited to participate.

Once you sign up, you will be provided with the following:

  1. A fact sheet about your child based on reliable testimony drawn from the Names Database of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

  2. A certificate, suitable for framing, attesting to your commitment to carry out this mitzvah.

  3. A wallet reminder card listing upcoming dates when you are expected to recite, to the best of your ability, Kaddish for your child.

Here’s what you need to do next:

  1. Download the Participation Form

      or pick one up at your organization’s office.

  1. Complete the form and turn it in to your organization.

  2. You will shortly receive your Participation Packet containing information about your child and instructions about when to recite Kaddish in his or her memory.

  3. Begin reciting the Kaddish prayer and lighting a Yahrzeit candle starting on the next appropriate date.

Am Yisroel Chai!
