On Sunday, December 5 at 2 p.m., the Skirball Museum on the Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion will participate in Chanukah Homecoming Weekend, a worldwide celebration of Jewish community.

This gathering is an opportunity to meet joyfully and in relational community after so much time apart due to the pandemic. Skirball Museum Director Abby Schwartz will offer an “illuminating” illustrated talk about Chanukah-related art objects in the Museum’s collections followed by the lighting of the Chanukah menorah for the last night of Chanukah. A special Chanukah gift to attendees will be the opportunity to visit the Skirball’s current exhibition in celebration of the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial, A Portrait of Jewish Cincinnati. 

The event will be offered both in-person and on Livestream. Registrants will receive the Livestream link prior to the event. Attendees must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and wear a mask. Pre-registration is required by Thursday, December 2. The event is free and open to the public. For registration information, see the ad in this issue of The American Israelite or contact the Cincinnati Skirball Museum.
