The Jewish Children’s Museum will be hosting its 4th annual Kosher Day this Sunday, October 18, between 12:00 and 5:00pm. The indoor-outdoor event is designed for the entire family to learn about the world of kosher in a fun, exciting way. There will be loads of prizes and giveaways, with samples, tastes, and gifts being handed out by more than 25 premier kosher food companies. Uncle Moishy will be performing live kosher-themed concerts throughout the day.
New for this year is the Great Kosher Chocolate Factory, where participants will not only discover how chocolate is made, but walk away with some of the delicious treats. Rock climbing, face painting, balloon sculptures and a photo booth are among the many attractions which will be offered.
“We come every year with all the kids, and we all have a blast,” says Bracha Klein of Brooklyn. “It’s a fun, educational way to spend the day out with the family, and finally something that each of my different-aged children can enjoy.”
“More than 6,000 participants enjoyed last year’s event, but as we are in a year of Hakhel, we’re anticipating an even greater turnout,” says Mendel Rosenfeld, director of the Kosher Day. “It brings together people from across the spectrum of the Tri-State Jewish community, and we are proud to host such a unifying event.”
Entry is just $6 per person (free for children under two), and includes access to all of the day’s attractions. The first 300 guests will receive a free gift. Rosenfeld says the low cost is thanks to the sponsors of Kosher Day. The event will take place both in the Jewish Children’s Museum, and on Kingston Avenue between Eastern Parkway and President Street.
