This colorful booklet lists all the ritual items needed for the Passover table. The history and significance of each item on the seder plate is explained, as are the customs that have been handed down through the generations in different centers of Jewish life.
InterfaithFamily and the Workmen's Circle are celebrating Tu B'Shevat, the Jewish New Year for the trees, and you're invited!
Join us for a FREE afternoon filled with food, music, art projects and social justice.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
In this special edition of the Museum’s ever popular RitLab (Ritual Laboratory), visitors can immerse themselves in a multitude of Chanukah-Houdini inspired activities. Soak up the melodies of Conspiracy of Beards who perform the songs of legendary singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen a capella and will be adding some special Chanukah tunes to its repertoire for the event. Pop into an Art Flash Gallery Chat on Houdini: Art and Magic – a new short format gallery talk for curatorial insights. Or, if you’re in a D-I-Y mood, create sophisticated and magically-inspired gifts including magic card wallets, monkey-fist key chains, and mysterious thaumatropes. Last, but not least, on this third night of Chanukah, join a dreidel spin-off! The Museum café is open during this event.
