Chanukah Art Festival At The Jewish Children’s Museum

Deaf Mazel Tov - NachshonWith Chanukah just days away, the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn will be merging its annual art-week program with a family Chanukah festival, appropriately named “Chanukah Art Festival.”

A series of Chanukah- and art-themed workshops have been scheduled, including “Soil to Oil,” where children will explore the process of creating pure olive oil, as well as a stained-glass technique workshop. Visitors will be able to observe fruit-carver Rich League as he creates his exquisite edible masterpieces and then head over to the doughnut-decorating station to design their own tasty treats.

Families will be able to take part in a grand menorah-lighting complete with singing, Chanukah gelt, and an appearance by “Judah Maccabee.” The menorah itself will be a piece of collaborative art, which will be decorated by the children throughout the week of Chanukah.

“We’ve chosen to combine two of our most popular programs this Chanukah,” remarked Batsheva Altein, family program coordinator at the Jewish Children’s Museum, “so you can really expect for there to be an activity suitable for everyone in the family.”

Children will also be able to explore the museum’s three floors of permanent exhibits and participate in live game shows, but make sure to check their online calendar since the program varies each day.

The Jewish Children’s Museum is located at 792 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 718-907-8833. Price for adults and children ages 2+ is $13 and includes all activities
