The tours, events and shows that will light up your Hanukkah

19 6 38

The holiday of lights, dreidels and sufganiyot doughnuts approaches, starting Sunday evening, November 28 through Monday, December 6, with activities being held across the country for the eight days of Hanukkah.

While Prime Minister Naftali Bennett warned Wednesday of possible restrictions over the eight-day holiday due to a rise in infections, primarily among children, plans are in progress for every kind of holiday gathering, given the six-day school vacation for this festival of lights.

We’ve gathered an assortment of options for Hanukkah, including museum tours, baking workshops, archaeological site visits, concerts and screenings:

1. The Anu Museum of the Jewish People at Tel Aviv University is offering special Hanukkah tours of its menorah collection, gathered from around the globe and through the ages, along with stories of Jewish heroes of all kinds, including artists who brought light to their particular time periods. Any family visiting the museum will receive Hanukkah gelt to spend in the museum shop. Head to the Anu website to purchase museum tickets, NIS 52 per person, free up to age 5.

2. Jerusalem’s new Karon Theater at Liberty Bell Park is putting on a Hanukkah Festival with a range of puppet shows for kids of all ages. Opening November 30 through December 6, the theater will present plays each day, as well as workshops and outdoor events on the grounds of the park. See the Karon Theater website for the selection of performances, all of which are in Hebrew, but often with more movement than text, making them easy........
