Virtual Holiday Tour: Hanukkah in the Tenements

Hosted By: Tenement Museum

Did they spin the dreidel in 1910? What does it take to fry a latke in a tenement apartment? For Jewish tenement residents of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, Hanukkah was a much smaller holiday than it is today, but one still full of traditional foods and rituals. Join the Tenement Museum on December 14th for a special virtual tour exploring how the Rogarshevsky and Confino families might have celebrated the holiday in the 1910s. From the Rogarshevsky’s Eastern European Ashkenazi traditions to the Confino’s Sephardic ones, we’ll explore this moment when Hanukkah grew in popularity and importance in the United States.
