Children's Program

5 January / 2 February / 2 March
Children’s Tour through the Permanent Exhibition
Halakah and Braided Bread – What goes into the Shabbat Basket?
How did a Jewish merchant live 300 years ago? What did she pack in her suitcase when she went traveling? A prayer book, clothes, or even a mobile phone? On this stroll through the exhibition, our young visitors take a playful look at Jewish traditions and how they have changed in the course of the centuries. They have fun experiencing how it feels to wear a kippah, admire a real scroll, and sniff a besamim box full of spices.
Ages: 6 to 12
Start: 11 am
Duration: approx. 1 hour
Cost: 3 euros (plus admission fee)

19 January /16 February /16 March
Children’s Tour and Handicraft Workshop
The Crazy Crooked House
Why are the walls in the Jewish Museum Berlin at a slant? Why does the staircase lead to nowhere? Why are the windows slits? Armed with a ruler and triangle, the children explore Daniel Libeskind’s architecture and the influences light, stairs, and corners have on a building.
Afterwards, they have the chance to roll up their sleeves and build their very own crazy fantasy house from cardboard, modeling clay and much more!
Ages: 8 to 10
Time: 11 am
Duration: approx. 2 hours
Cost: 3 euros (plus admission fee)

4 and 6 February
Children’s Tour and Handicraft Workshop
A cup is a vessel for a drink – cocoa, tea, or coffee. But do all cups, teapots, and vases look the same? In the exhibition "Tonalities," the children can see which different forms four Jewish women ceramicists chose for cups, vases, and figures.
In the workshop that follows, they themselves are the crockery designers – with material, paper and a host of other materials, they design their very own vases, cups, and jugs.
Ages: 6 to 10
Time: 10 am
Duration: approx. 2 hours
Cost: 3 euros (plus admission fee)
Information and visitor booking: tel. +49 (0)30 25 993 305 / 437 or kinder[at]jmberlin.de
