Christmas Day at the Shul
December 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On a day when most places are closed, the Museum will swing open our doors for a special day of tours and activities! From noon to 2:00 p.m., kids and adults alike will be busy enjoying tours of the Museum’s landmark building, self-guided scavenger hunts, and special family art projects. The Museum’s new exhibition, Let There Be Light! featuring over 100 fun and unique menorahs, will delight visitors in the main historic sanctuary.
At 3:00 p.m., enjoy a live concert with Lisa Mayer and her sons Zachary & Aaron perform music from the Hasidic, Klezmer and Yiddish traditions, as well as new Biblical Ballads and nigunim for the next generation. Lisa is a known Klezmer personality from the Sruli and Lisa duo; Zachary, 28, just completed a Masters Degree from the New England Conservatory of Music and tours with Zion 80; and Aaron, 23, is a senior at Brown University. The family has performed at the Folksbiene Yiddish Theatre, teach at KlezKanada, and headlined at International Music Festivals around the world.
The Museum at Eldridge Street offers a joyful, alternative way to spend the holiday. Engage in a time-honored New York tradition by spending Christmas Day in Chinatown!
