All Day Chanukah (Multi-Day event) (Multi-Day Event)

Jewish holyday: Chanukah (Dedication) begins at sunset the evening before the 25th day of the month of Kislev, in remembrance of how the vastly outnumbered Jews, led by the Maccabees, miraculously won a major victory in 168 BCE against the occupying Syrians, who had outlawed Judaism and defiled the Temple of Jerusalem by worshipping idols of Greek Gods. After their victory, the Jews rededicated the Holy Temple to G-D by relighting the ner tamid(Eternal Light), but there was only enough oil for one day. Miraculously, the oil lasted 8 days, until more could be secured, so the light of the Temple could burn constantly.[i] A celebration of Jewish identity, religious freedom, and the triumph of light over darkness, the Festival of Lights is characterized by lighting an additional candle in the menorah each night. Other customs include making latkes, giving children Chanukah gelt (money or chocolate coins), and playing dreidel (a spinning top with the Hebrew lettersnungimmelhei and shin which stands for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham, meaning "a Great Miracle Happened There”).[ii]

8:30 AM - 8:30 PM Drawing=Thinking
Conceived in tandem with Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing/Daring, at The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, MA, the ‘exhibit’ will activate the gallery by transforming it into an interactive maker space for drawing and thinking. The programming is conceived as a response to The Art Complex Museum exhibit whose participants (four of whom are New England School of Art and Design faculty) share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and mediums that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. 

Drawing = Thinking enhances the gallery as a site actuated by the correspondence of drawing to thinking and vice versa. Workshops and demos will give students and the general public and students the chance to experience the many ways that drawing and thinking overlap.  The results from these will contribute to a growing exhibit in the space of the gallery from November through January. 

All workshops will be during student activity period –on Tuesday or Thursday, from 1 – 2:30p.m. 
Pizza will be provided 
Check the gallery website for schedule of activities:
