Free Family Night at the Children's Museum of Houston: December 2 5-8pm

Dan Gordon is a very gifted story teller. It is a treat to hear him. 



Children's Museum of Houston celebrates Jewish Festival of Lights as part of Seasons of Sharing exhibit

December 2 – 8

Hanukkah O Hanukkah, come light the menorah! Hanukkah celebrates the miracle Jewish people experienced after reclaiming the Temple of Jerusalem, when a tiny amount of lamp oil lit up the Temple for eight days. The Festival of Lights is celebrated by lighting the Menorah for eight nights.  It is a time of giving, prayer and togetherness.

Our Hanukkah celebration is part of Seasons of Sharing, Houston's only multicultural holiday exhibit for children spotlighting seven cultural celebrations on display Nov. 13 through Jan. 9.

  • Olive Press Workshop:  Learn how the Hanukkah menorah is lit when you join Rabbi Mendy from Chabad Lubavitch Outreach, as he leads a workshop about the traditions of the lights of Hanukkah.
                     Thursday, Dec. 2: 5:30 and 7 p.m. during Free Family Night
                     Friday, Dec. 3: Noon—2 p.m.
