Public School Initiative

The Jewish Children's Museum is the first and only fully-interactive Jewish museum created for and geared towards children. Through multi-media technology, the varied textures of Jewish history, values, and culture come to life, and meets New York State Learning Standards.


is geared for Public School students, introducing them to a colorful array of customs and traditions in the Jewish culture. Experienced museum educators will guide students as they step back in time to explore the Jewish holiday cycle in a quaint, cobblestoned village.

Students will shop in a kid-sized Kosher supermarket, press olive oil for the Hanukkah menorah, and crawl through the world’s largest challah-bread. They will enjoy a live, interactive game show and get creative with a Jewish themed craft, to take home as a souvenir.

As students examine the roots and basis for many Jewish customs, they will recognize manners of conduct that stand at the root of practices found in other cultures around the world.
