MAKE Hanukkah: A Jewish Maker Summit

  • The Contemporary Jewish Museum 736 Mission Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

On November 18th from 1-4:30, Atiq: Jewish Maker Institute in collaboration with Lehrhaus Judaica and the Contemporary Jewish Museum will be presenting a Jewish Maker Summit in advance of Hanukkah. The summit will take place at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. 

The Maker Summit is geared towards adults but open to participants ages 10 and up. It will involve 5 simultaneous maker workshops, each designed and facilitated by a team of a master educator and an experienced maker/artist. Facilitators include: Deena Aranoff, Yosef Rosen, Ariel Mayse, Peretz Wolf-Prusan, Arielle Tonkin, Tamar Zaken, Daniel Barash, Jessica Tamar Deutsch, Natan Kuchar and Dorielle Parker -- a truly incredible group of artists and educators!

No prior background in making or Judaism is necessary (you don't need to be Jewish to participate!), and participants will leave with a sacred item/object to share with family and friends on Hanukkah, and a deeper appreciation of the opportunities of meaning within the holiday.

For maker educators this event would be an amazing way to get a sense of our take on weaving together meaning making and making, and also deeper insight into a key Jewish holiday!

Would love to have you join us, and please feel free to share the info with anyone who might be interested! Info and registration here
