Welcome to Our Museum!

Curator: Avigail Sharer

Stone, brass, silver, gold — there’s no end to the materials used for menorahs through the ages. From the magnificent gold Menorah in the Beis HaMikdash to tiny stone chanukiyos hidden away from enemy eyes, let’s stroll through MJ’s own collection of special menorahs and artifacts through the ages!

 

Party Favors

Chany Rosengarten

If kids would vote for their favorite Yom Tov, I bet Chanukah would win. That’s what I’d vote for, at least. I know that some of you would be yelling “Purim! Purim!” That’s when all the candies and music and costumes and friendly baskets are exchanged. Still, I vote for Chanukah because I have Aunt Zelda’s Chanukah party.

 

Zooming Around with Zeidy Zakon

Rabbi Nachman and Miriam Zakon

Shalom, Zeidy! Shalom, kinderlach. Where we going today? Look here, I’ll show you. See the map of Eretz Yisrael? I want you to call out the names of the places my fingers point to on the map. Moshav Mattisyahu. Maccabim. Modiin. Modiin Ilit – Kiryat Sefer. Zeidy … all these places are Chanukah names! That’s right. We are going to visit the Modiin area, where the story of Chanukah began. It’s only about a half-hour drive from Yerushalayim.
