In the Megillah there have been a couple of wine parties with King Achasveirosh, Queen Ester, and Evil Haman. When Haman wanted to annihilate the Jewish people, the Jews felt squeezed and pressured. Feeling Squeezed usually has a negative connotation, yet when we look at the process of wine making, squeezing a grape becomes a fine process. Wine is not found naturally, only after squeezing a high quality grape will you be able to enjoy the delicious spirit. The above parable is connected to the Purim Story. Instead of the Jews bending to the pressure, the essence of the Jewish Pride shone and sparkled. Today by displaying Jewish Pride, we relive the message of the Purim story.
Happy Purim & Shabbat Shalom !!! 💐🤡

The Jewish people have ups and downs; Haman tried destroying the Jewish nation on this thought. However he did not take in to account the Jews unbreakable relationship with G-d. All other holidays celebrate the high’s of the Jewish Nation, where Joy can’t last. Purim celebrates the low’s where the relationship with G-d was unshakable. Creating a Joy that is continues and unbreakable.

Shabbat Shalom & Happy Adar!!! 💐🤡

Exhibit showdown part 4 of 5.
⚠️ Kids at Play. But this time with their eyes :)
The art above is proudly displayed on the 2nd floor where events happen.
“When Moshiach Comes” by Michoel Schwartz
Is an image depicting Moshiach’s arrival. This painting is quite fascinating, and one that can’t get old. When taking a glance you will notice the wonderful miracles that will happen with Moshiach’s arrival, and when taking a deeper glance you can notice 387,000 words written into the picture from many Rabbi’s throughout the centuries.

Next time you stop by for a visit; try to find some of the hidden messages woven into this masterpiece.

This week's #TorahPortion, #Mishpatim, begins with the first law that the #Jewish People received after receiving the #torah at #MtSinai: the #mitvah of fair treatment for slaves. The #Torah is teaching us a valuable lesson. When establishing laws the lowest rung of society, should be kept in mind. When evaluating morals, the first idea should be treating those below us with dignity. When looking to improve our character, find a way to help those that are less fortunate then ourselves- when searching for meaning, we can gain new purpose in our conduct towards others.

Shabbat Shalom & Happy Rosh Chodesh Adar!!! 🤡

The theme of this weeks Torah Portion is receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai. Many miracles occurred including the blind being able to see the thunder, and the deaf able to hear the lightning! Because of the miracles, each person could know G-d and accept the Torah with all their 5 senses. May it be G-d's will, that speedily all shall be healed and live in tranquility, just like when the Jews were camped by the mountain!

Shabbat Shalom!!! 💐

How many gumballs do you think fit inside our gumball machine?

Today's exhibit is one we are excited to show you!
The "World of Good Room" located on the 3rd floor is here to show how your little deed makes a difference!
Our Gumball machine is not going to give you a gumball. Instead your $0.25 is being donated to a charity of choice, may it be a Soup kitchen, Hospital, Synagogue, Israel, Hebrew School, or an Orphanage!
Once your coin goes into the gumball machine the journey begins, watching as it whizzes through the obstacle course, then being directed with your help to the location of donation choice.
In simple terms giving is cool ;)

If you live in the USA, and put your hand in your pocket, it’s possible you’ll find a little copper penny. Every coin and dollar bill printed in the US has some small words written on there, “In God we Trust” and E Pluribus Unum” (the Latin for ‘From Many One’). Written in English for all the inhabitants of the land to understand is simple, Trust in God. Written in Latin a scholarly language there is a message of unity. When putting a coin in charity remember the simple lesson a coin teaches; one of believing in God, and one of spreading unity to all those around you!

⚠️ Kids at Play.
The 4th floor of the Museum takes you on a Voyage through Jewish History.
Today we will skip to the Jewish Year 2449, building the Tabernacle-Mishkan.
When you complete the building of the Mishkan you will generate the clouds/shchina to rest on the Tabernacle-Mishkan! Creating a vibe that was felt almost 3000 years ago 😲🤯.

Cool factor to note: the Tabernacle-Mishkan was built with Acacia Wood, along the exhibit there is actual Acacia Wood!

Moses told over, and translated the Torah from hebrew into 70 languages on the 1st of Shvat (which was yesterday).
That’s pretty cool, but how relatable is it to me, today, or this day and age?
The translated Torah is here to show us that the Torah was not made solely for one person or time. The Torah is here allowing each person to take ownership and understanding of the words and lessons, creating a timeless treasure that keeps on giving.

Every person has the potential for greatness!
Greatness is not obtained through perfection: it’s through hard work and toil that creates great people. Every time one works on themselves to be better, kinder to another person, or choosing good over evil, their potential for greatness is revealed.

Hebrew word of the Week
נסיון: Challenge
One is able to learn lessons from everything! The Jewish people have had their ups and downs, with Challenges thrown in every direction. What lesson can be learned from challenges?
The Hebrew word for challenge: נסיון (nisayaon) the word נסיון has another word inside, the word נס (nais) which means miracle. Miracles are there to uplift a person from their previous state!
When faced with a challenge, here’s something to remember! A challenge/ נסיון was placed before you, use the miracle/נס, and elevate the challenge!

Today the 10th of Teves is a significant day in Jewish History. It’s the day where the city of Jerusalem was besieged which ultimately led to the invasion and then destruction of the Holy Temple. Today, when you add in kindness, history will be reversed, creating a happier world where Kindness will win!
