Rising (2016) by Elyssa Wortzman
A descriptive video explaining Rising is now available by clicking here.
As a result of growing international interest in commemorating Yom HaShoah, FJMC with the aid of noted artist Elyssa Wortzman developed, Rising. The Yellow Candles™ label, employing Hebrew, Spanish, French and English reflects FJMC’s cooperation with World Jewry. Partners in this endeavor at the Seminario Latinoamericano, Marshal Meyer in Buenos Aires and the Men of Reform Judaism.
The label addresses the question “How do you transmit memory and loss to someone who does not have a direct connection to the past event?”, an increasingly familiar theme today as fewer survivors of the Holocaust remain.
Candles and programmatic material to enrich Holocaust engagement can be found at the Yellow Candles™ home page.
Yellow Candles™ featuring Rising will be shipped out on a first come first served basis. Remaining orders will be filled from stock featuring The Mission – by Israeli Artist, Dubi Arie.
