Taste of Israel Family Fun Series continues this weekend at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage

(CLEVELAND, OH) OCTOBER 31, 2018 – The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is proud to announce a family fun series that draws themes from the Museum’s new special exhibition, Israel: Then & Now.

The monthly family fun series kicked off in October to rave reviews as children of all backgrounds explored what it would be like to travel to Israel, pretending to go on an airplane and making their own passports. In addition, families have enjoyed an expansion to the Israel: Then & Now exhibition called “Ari and Abigail’s Passport to Israel,” a StoryWalk ® in which story panels and coordinating hands-on activities guide children through the exhibition. The StoryWalk ® remains open everyday.

The Maltz Museum’s family fun series continues this weekend with Animals of Israel featuring Jungle Terry on Sunday, November 4, from 1:30-3PM. $5 general admission with registration, Free for age 5 and under & Maltz Museum Members (2929 Richmond Rd, Beachwood; 216-593-0575; www.maltzmuseum.org).
