Mazel Tov: What is Luck to You?

Workshop for Kids’ Groups

We wish each other good luck and share twice the luck. What does luck even mean? What is the role of the pomegranate in Judaism?

Visitors have hung their wishes on a tree in the museum; we discover their similarities and differences. In the permanent exhibition, we discover what a woman wrote about her good and bad luck around 300 years ago. Do her ideas match ours? We look at a simple tin charity box and an elaborate wedding canopy and try to figure out what makes people lucky.

Finally, the children each place personal wishes in homemade paper pomegranates.
