Special Hanukkah Event In Jerusalem

The week of Hanukkah in Israel lends itself to exploring urban Israel and seeing the lights of the Hanukkiah shine in the windows and doorways of different neighborhoods all the while tasting the fresh donuts from the bakeries that are customarily made at this time of year. The best places to see the Hanukkah candles are the Old City of Jerusalem, the neighborhood of Nachlaot in Jerusalem and the Old City of Tzfat.


The MakeLight exhibit is an annual theme exhibit featuring the work of Makers from all over the country. This year’s exhibit, Light Outside the Box is a tribute to the Games in Light and Shadow exhibit that the museum has presented in the past four years. It uses fun and games to shed light on the relationships between the source of light, the body casting a shadow and the area on which the shadow falls. Light Outside the Box exhibit is a celebration of art and creativity and an examination of how far the boundaries of a familiar, everyday phenomenon such as casting a shadow can be pushed.





Neve Sha'anan neighborhood was originally designed as a candelabrum. During 2 nights in December (22nd and 24th), the neighborhood will recreate the original candelabrum and illuminate the multicultural abundance and complexity of the neighborhood with dozens of Performances, light installations and projections, music, food, tours, parties, and engaged-art in public and private spaces. The neighborhood will come to life through light and art.
The walls of the Citadel serve as a stage for a nighttime show which is a celebration of sight and sound. Amidst the archaeological remains including those that date back to the time of the Maccabees in the Citadel’s courtyard and to the sound of original music, the story of Jerusalem unfolds through giant breathtaking, virtual reality images.
The Night Spectacular uses trompe l’oeil technologythe stones of the walls and structures fade into the scenes and the screened images envelop the viewers and whisk them off to a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience.


Light Box Workshop – a surprising and entertaining pyramid of light boxes. Families are invited to design their own creations in the LIGHT BOX workshop, combining creativity, imagination, and the spirit of ecology. The light boxes will be incorporated in a structure built by visitors and displayed every day.
