Last Month in Review
On the 28th of January we held the first meeting of our "Family Weekends at the Museum" including a story hour and crafts workshop. We were proud to host more than 30 children to listen to the story "Move, Sun" by Dafna Ben Zvi, afterwards the children created personal, unique "worry dolls".
At the start of the month we were honored to host the organization "Seeds of Peace" for a private event in the form of a concert of the respected singers, Achinoam Nini and Mira Awad. Between all the songs, we were even lucky enough to host David Broza on our stage!
