Did you know that each year on Sukkot, Jewish people all over the world build temporary shelters called Sukkahs and welcome friends and neighbors to join them inside for meals and festivities? In fact, over time, welcoming in all those around you has become an important value of the holiday. This year, we welcome you to join us as we celebrate Sukkot with book readings, kosher food tastings, music, and more! Take a walk through our rooftop Sukkah and learn all about the holiday’s origins and how people celebrate today in Brooklyn and around the world!
Holding History - Brooklyn Children's Museum
Through December 31, 2018 - Crown Heights
What makes an object “historical?” Why do museums keep objects behind glass? Children will ponder these questions holding, touching, and feeling historical artifacts from the museum's collection. They will learn about the history of those objects through this tactical investigation and by relating these historical artifacts to their own lives.
