On Sunday 15th September 2013, in the framework of its participation at the common activity organised by the members of the Network of Museums and Cultural Institutions of Athens, the Jewish Museum of Greece offered for free an educational program for families with children aged between 6 to 12 years old, entitled: "Jewish Holidays".
Aim of the program was for the children to get to know the most important holidays of the Jewish calendar and to appreciate the wide appeal of holidays in all peoples and ages. Furthermore, to discover elements common in both the Jewish and Christian religion, in the calendar, customs and traditions of the two. 15 children with their parents participated at the program, leaving with positive impressions and the urge to search more on issues on the Jewish religion and history. Many of them have also expressed their desire to visit the Jewish Museum of Greece for the first time.
At the same time, visitors could get more information on the museum, its educational programs, its exhibitions (permanent and temporary), its activities and forthcoming seminars through leaflets offered by the museum staff.
