For Children

Hanukkah workshops and attractions for families with children

We invite children and their guardians to celebrate Hanukkah and have some fun together. Many exciting attractions await you at our Museum. During the workshops, you will be able to make your own decoupage candles and clay Hanukkah menorot. You will also have an opportunity to taste freshly baked doughnuts and play the game of dreidel. Other attractions include the chance to experiment with light, listen to traditional Hanukkah tales and take part in an interactive family concert of the Alla Pollacca choir.
