Olive Pressing Workshop
November 22, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - December 14, 2015 @ 2:30 pm
Pick…press…pour…and explore the story of Chanukah!
Learn about the ancient art of oil-pressing that has been around since temple times as well as other holiday traditions at this hands-on workshop. Participants will choose the best olives, extract the oil and finally light a Chanukah menorah using their hand-made wicks and freshly produced oil.
Visitors will also be able to explore the museum’s 3 floors of permanent exhibits, including a child sized kosher supermarket, a mega “climb-on” Shabbat table, voyage through Jewish history and more!
Sessions: 12:30pm, 2:00pm
Join us on Sundays leading up to Chanukah, on Thanksgiving, and during the week of Chanukah.
