Come Out from the Cold This Winter
We know it is hard to take off your fuzzy slippers during the winter and head outside, but we’ve got some really compelling reasons to get off the couch this season. We’re happy to announce that our January, February, and March programs are now on sale. If you have finished your Hanukkah shopping, please feel free to read ahead. If not, bookmark this link and read it later. Not to nag, but you know Hanukkah is almost over, right?
So, back to winter programming... Foreign film enthusiasts will want to take note of the Museum’s Hungarian film festival featuring several Oscar nominated films. Family fare includes The Hatseller and the Monkeys, a special Tu B’shevat musical storytelling performance, and a funky Purim concert by audience favorite Mama Doni.
Other highlights include: NBC’s Martin Fletcher discussion of his wonderful book Walking Israel with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell; the 30th anniversary screening of the landmark film Playing for Time with cast members and the producer; not to mention a plethora of other films, book talks, theater performances, and exhibition previews.
