Hanukkah Art History

Hosted By: Museum At Eldridge Street

Explore fascinating facts about Chanukah, the Festival of Lights! Its history includes a Jewish civil war, assassinations, bribery, conspiracies, sex, heroes, heroines, kings, and queens. View artistic interpretations of the holiday’s personalities by Titian, Rubens, Caravaggio, Klimt, Botticelli, and more.

Guest lecturer Ellaine Rosen will dispel popular Chanukah myths and misconceptions by exposing the true origins of gelt, latkes, dreidels, and the miraculous cruse of oil. Investigate the evolution of the Chanukiah, the Chanukah lamp, and the varied styles which reflect the architecture of the countries in which they were crafted. Discover a lesser-known reason for the eight-day celebration, and how the celebration of Chanukah was affected by Christmas.
