Menorahs and Miracles

Bring the whole family to this popular Hanukkah celebration!


Join us for Hanukkah at the museum with our partner, Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center of Silicon Valley (APJCC). Take joy in sharing your own culture, or discovering the traditions of your neighbors by making celebratory candles, playing dreidel games, and tasting delicious pre-packaged latkes. Go on a miracle scavenger hunt, enjoy Storytime in Hebrew, Russian and English in the Amphitheater (weather permitting), enjoy songs performed by the Yavneh Day School students, and learn more about Hanukkah by watching a short video in the theater. This lively program is capped off by a parade in front of the museum to sing and light the menorah.
