Menorahs and Miracles

Menorahs and Miracles is a cultural celebration of Hanukkah that takes place annually on the first Sunday in December at the Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose. The 2018 event will be December 2 from 12:00-4:00pm. Regular museum admission fees apply. Stay tuned for details.

Jewbilee

The next Jewbilee Day of Learning will be Sunday, January 13, 2019.

Jewbilee is an annual celebration of Jewish learning. The afternoon is divided into sessions, with many classes, workshops and performances happening simultaneously during each session. You choose what you want to do.

Hundreds of participants, and dozens of teachers, artists, educators, speakers, and performers.

The Jewbilee ideal is that the entire Jewish community can come together for a day under one roof, despite our many differences, and celebrate being Jewish and what that means to each of us. Through a diverse program lineup–including rabbis from all denominations, professors from various Bay Area colleges and universities, students, teachers, artists, cooks and performers–our goal is to present a diversity of Jewish beliefs, political orientations, cultures and experiences. Jewbilee is a day to try on a different Jewish hat; a new idea, a new practice, a new conversation.
