Join us for a morning of creating, learning, and crafting to celebrate the Jewish Deli, family style.

Read with children’s book authors Pamela Ehrenberg, Erica Perl, and Alan Silberberg, braid challah with Paula Shoyer, and take action on food insecurity with MAZON.  Enjoy specialty crafts, games, and a scavenger hunt to guide even the littlest learners through the Museum.
