Skirball Re-Dedication


The Skirball Cultural Center will dedicate its expanded and redesigned galleries on Sunday (Dec. 5) during an all-day Chanukah family festival.

Among the highlights of the 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. festival are a Chanukah lamp treasure hunt and art workshop, family theater and storytelling, music by the Brandeis-Bardin Klezmer Ensemble, and a candle-lighting and sing-along to mark the third night of Chanukah.

Governor Gray Davis will speak at the 2 p.m. dedication ceremony. Other participants will include Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa, Assembly members Wally Knox and Sheila Kuehl, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.

A lecture series marking the Skirball's rededication starts Saturday (Dec. 4) at 2 p.m. with a talk by Tom L. Freudenheim of the Jewish Museum in Berlin on "The Jews of Berlin: Yesterday and Today."

On Sunday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m., Skirball President Uri Herscher will join in conversation with Martin Dannenberg. As a Counter Intelligence Corps agent during World War II, Dannenberg witnessed the discovery of the original Nuremberg racial laws documents, now on display at the museum.

General admission to the museum and the Dec. 5 festival is $8, for seniors and students $6, and free for members and kids under 12. For information, call (310) 440-4500, or access the web site www.skirball.org. -- Tom Tugend, Contributing Editor
