Don’t miss Boston’s most vibrant Hanukkah happening! Feel the energy as the MFA comes alive with music, art, crafts and storytelling at this free night of fun for all ages.

Dance to Jim Guttmann’s big band, Bessarabian Breakdown (with klezmer dance lessons), enjoy the Voice of the Turtle Duo’s timeless versions of ancient Sephardic folk songs, experience Yiddish-infused opera performances by Anthony Mordechai Zvi Russell and hear stories by local Moth storytelling champion Rabbi Dan Judson.

Enjoy art-making throughout the museum, try your hand at drawing in the galleries, join gallery talks and go on a Hanukkah-themed scavenger hunt.

At 6:30 p.m., join us in the Shapiro Courtyard to light the MFA-commissioned menorah by artist Silvina Mizrahi.

New this year: Participate in the creation of a glow-in-the-dark hanukkiah art installation.

Families, come early: We’ll have a PJ Library sing-along, face painting and craft projects starting at 4:30 p.m.
