Children´s Workshop

Why does the Jewish new Year already begin in autumn? Why are you supposed to eat sweet things on Rosh ha-Shana and what is the Shofar all about?

This year, the Jewish Culture Days are offering a programme run by children for children for the first time. We are inviting jewish and non-jewish children aged 5 – 13 years to find out more about jewish history in Berlin, as well as jewish festivals and traditions.

Inaugurated on Rosh ha-Shana (the jewish New Year) in September 1866, rhe New Synagogue was once Germany´s largest synagogue with space for 3200 worshippers. Even today, it remains an important landmark of the city and is at least as famous as the Berlin bear. These afternoons, before Shabbat, children will explain how they see “their synagogue”.

You will not only become experts in our workshop, but also create beautiful New Year´s cards to be sent and given as presents, and at the end we will invite you to enjoy a delicious “Oneg” with apples and honey.
