Year of the Rabbit

It’s time to gear up for the Lunar New Year, which is February 3. In addition to dreaming of dim sum, we’re excited to announce two terrific ways to ring in the year of the rabbit.

Our friends at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) will be hosting a family festival this Sunday, January 30. The day will include storytelling with celebrated children’s book author Kam Mak, a noodle-making workshop, a special lion dance performance and workshop, and family-friendly gallery talks through MOCA's core exhibit as well as through our newest exhibit, Chinese Puzzles: Games for the Hands and the Mind. There will also be arts and crafts activities throughout the day. The celebration is for ages 4 and up.

We also want to remind you that it is not too late to sign up for the Museum of Jewish Heritage’s first-ever Mah Jongg Marathon on February 6. The day will include the chance to win a room and dinner at the New York Marriott Downtown and many other fabulous prizes. Special guests such as author and illustrator Maira Kalman will also be stopping by to chat and perhaps play a hand. Register now and help us put the fun back in fundraising!
