About the Event

Chanukah is about the first time when Jewish survival was threatened by a culture, not a nation. How can a culture be threatening?  

Hellenism  was threatening more because of its similarities than its differences with Judaism, as surprising as it sounds. Judaism also values beauty, language and philosophy, and these were especially intriguing to Jews. We will explore some of these themes through the exquisite artifacts in the museum as well as ancient texts. Let's engage in the story of Chanukah through a memorable experience!
