Skirball Center – Hanukah Festival

January 2, 2011

Looking for frogs and fishes

We love the Skirball Cultural Center. It is conveniently located off the 405 freeway in Los Angeles, parking is free and there is plenty of it – with two huge lots. There is a plethora of year round activities and exhibitions – including the Hanukah Festival. (In the summer, they have an excellent family music concert series which many musicians clamour to be a part of.) The Skirball Cultural Center is our place of choice to celebrate the Jewish Holidays since it’s an incredibly inclusive organization.

The Hanukah Festival featured some extraordinary entertainment at a variety of locations throughout the center – including an amazing jazz ensemble right in the cafeteria which had Mishy mesmerized. She also had her first taste of potato latkas. She loved them and we were given much more than the standard portion because the woman who was plating them loved how Mishy was eating them in line. There were many activities to choose from – including doll making, candle making and having timed entry to Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Ark is a fantastic permanent exhibition at the Skirball Cultural Center. It occupies 8000 square feet or exploration, play and make believe. We are members of the Skirball Cultural Center and it has been one of our best investments.
