Children Play Archaeologists in Jewish Museum Exhibit

June 12, 2008
In the days and weeks leading up to the holiday of Shavuot – which marks the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai – children throughout New York’s tri-state area descended on the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn for its feature “Sinai Sensation” exhibit. The exhibit, which traced the Jewish people’s journey from Egypt to Mt. Sinai, invited visitors to don goggles and fish through a mock seabed to find ancient treasures left behind during the splitting of the Sea of Reeds. A “Desert Challenge” segment, which continues through the summer, recreated the Jewish people’s trek through the desert.
