Honolulu Museum of Art

Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information

While the Honolulu Jewish Film Festival 2017 is in full swing, the museum celebrates Jewish culture.

Note: Activities end at 3pm.


Hamsa hands: Kids will decorate clay hamsa hands. The hand-shaped ornaments are a protective sign and are said to bring the owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. 

Give a little: Kids will cut different colored pieces of paper and decorate the outside of cardboard boxes. Taking inspiration from the Hebrew word “tzedakah,” which means charitable giving, kids can use the boxes as a way to collect money or good wishes that will go to a good cause.

Hebrew lesson: Kids can learn to write their names and other words in Hebrew.

Lending Collection preview: Kids will get a chance to view and touch items from HoMA’s lending collection.


Sing and dance: Enjoy live musical performances and Israeli folk dancing from 11am to 3pm.

Storytelling: Hear Rabbi Daniel Lev tell Jewish stories from 1:30pm to 2pm.   

Take a tour: Meet with a docent for a gallery tour. Times TBA.
