Manchester Jewish Museum

Card making, food and dreidels!
Chanukah Family Fun Day



Manchester Jewish Museum Learning Studio


£6 full, £5 concessions, £4.5 family, £4 children (tickets include general admission)

Join us for family fun with Chanukah-themed drop-in activities and get in the festive spirit! We are partnering with PJ Library to bring you crafts inspired by some of their books.

We will be making Chanukah cards and sending them to the local Nicky Alliance community centre to spread Chanukah well wishes.

We will also be trying some Chanukah themed foods and writing Chanukah Haikus (to be featured in our newsletter!).

There will also be a dreidel game and a chance to win some Chanukah gelt!

What’s PJ Library?

Each month PJ Library (PJ for pyjamas!) gifts away Jewish books to families raising Jewish children from birth to 8 years old. The award-winning, non-denominational books celebrate Jewish culture, values and traditions through a wide range of stories and beautiful illustrations.
