Candle Lighting for Oneness - A Social Media Campaign

Please share #CandleLightingForOneness throughout social media!

Take a look at the steps below to see how you can get involved.

A Candle Lighting Campaign for Oneness

On Friday, June 18th please participate in lighting candles.

In accordance with Jewish tradition, candles are lit 18 minutes before sunset on Friday night.

In a time of increasing darkness, invite in The Light of HaShem (a Hebrew word for God, meaning The Name).

Join the Jewish community in these traditions to honor and amplify the light within us all and invite peace into the world.

Bring Light into the World

Candles on Friday night mark the beginning of Shabbat/Sabbath - a time to disconnect from the outer world and tune into the light within us. Together, let’s light candles and meditate on the flickering flame with ONE prayer to bring more light into the world.

Sing For Peace

After lighting the candles, we’ll sing a song of peace, Shalom Aleichem – May Peace Be Upon You.

Share Sacred Blessings

Share blessings of lights and peace, and acts of goodness with your loved ones and community.

A Statement from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council on the Onslaught of Rocket Attacks in Israel

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation and its Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) strongly condemn the barrage of rocket fire and incendiary balloons launched from Gaza by Hamas and Islamic Jihad that began on Monday, May 10 and has continued through today.

We are deeply concerned about this major escalation of violence by these two terrorist organizations utilizing hundreds of rockets aimed at heavily populated areas in Israel causing deaths and injuries. The attacks have been widespread from small towns surrounding Jerusalem to the heart of the country in Tel Aviv and have forced millions of Israelis into safe rooms and bomb shelters causing trauma and fear. Schools are closed and everyday life has come to a standstill.

The recent wave of provocative attacks must end with an immediate ceasefire. By forcing Israel to retaliate to protect its citizens, these extremist groups are responsible for deaths on both sides of the conflict.

We unequivocally stand with the people of Israel and support Israel’s right to defend itself and do all that it can to stop these attacks on its civilians at once. Many members of Miami’s Jewish community have children, grandchildren, extended family and friends in harm’s way at this very moment and we join them in praying for their safety and wellbeing. We extend our prayers for a speedy recovery – refu’ah sh’leymah – to all those injured and mourn for all innocent lives lost during these senseless attacks.

Be Part of the Jewish Community's Response to Help the Victims of India's Coronavirus Pandemic

India is in crisis. Be part of the Jewish community’s response to help provide emergency resources to combat the dramatic and devastating wave of COVID-19.

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to raise money for live-saving medical supplies and telemedicine support for ICU doctors and nurses.

Please click here to make a secure donation now.

Following the Talmudic teaching in Sanhedrin, “Whoever saves a life is considered as if he saved an entire world,” we are working with our overseas partner The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and our on-the-ground partner IsraAid to help secure and distribute critically needed equipment such as ventilators, oxygen concentrators and cylinders, filtered masks and more. With more than 350,000 daily cases — the most of any country at any point during the pandemic — Indian healthcare providers have been crippled with the influx of new patients. Donations checks with the notation “India Emergency” can be mailed to: Greater Miami Jewish Federation, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33137. As always, Federation will absorb all administrative costs so that 100 percent of funds collected will be provided directly to our partners.
