Crafts Workshop

A variety of year-round arts and crafts activities
will supplement children’s experiences in the exhibit
halls. They’ll enjoy designing challah covers similar
to the one they saw on the giant Shabbat table, braiding
their own havdalah candle, or creating a “tzedekah”
box in which to give the charity they learned about in
the World of Good. In addition to reinforcing the museum’s
messages, these and other creative projects will allow
children to bring home a bit of the museum experience.
Special workshops throughout the year will let children
try their hand at various activities, including making
their own shofars for Rosh Hashanah, baking challah or
matzah and making a Chanukah menorah.

Game Show Studio

Everybody loves a quiz show. At the Jewish
Children’s Museum, visitors can compete against
each other to answer questions on Jewish life in a sounds-and-lights-filled
game show setting. Three games will be offered on a rotating
schedule. The first is be based on the popular Jeopardy
television show. “Spiel of Fortune” and “2
by 2 MemoRebus - formatted like “Wheel
of Fortune” and “Classic Concentration”
respectively - will soon follow. Varying levels of
difficulty will enable children of all ages and backgrounds
to play.


From movies about upcoming holidays to
glimpses of Jewish life in far reaching locations, visitors
to the Jewish Children’s Museum will enjoy a wide
range of presentations in a state-of-the-art theater.
The latest audio-visual technology has been used to create
the ultimate viewing experience.


Filled with Jewish books, this remarkable resource enables
visitors and members of the community to explore a wide
range of topics, including Jewish holidays and observance,
Jewish thought and theology, history, and more.

Discovery Synagogue

The Jewish Children’s Museum’s Discovery Synagogue
will be a model house of worship where visitors can get
up close and personal with a Torah, a yad—the pointer
used to read the Torah, and other objects. See the Ner
Tamid—the eternal lamp that is kept lit all of the
time. Look through a prayer book, and even speak with
a rabbi.
