If you answered yes to these questions, you should join us for activities in Hanukkah for children in Jerusalem. It is THE thing to do this Chanukah!


Join us for a Chanukah activity for families and children in the Western Wall Tunnels. In the heart of Jerusalem, at the site closest to where the Chanukah miracle took place, come join a profound and fun experience that will touch you all and even make your kids look up from their phones!
In honor of Chanukah, the Western Wall Tunnels dress up and invite you for a guided family tour with activities for kids.
During the tour an actor will play different characters related to the Chanukah story, you’ll see street theater accompanied by a musician playing Chanukah songs, and don’t worry – if you don’t remember all the words, your songbook and fresh sufganiya will jog your memory.
We will conclude at the Western Wall Plaza where we learn about the Chanukah miracle that took place right here on Temple Mount near the Western Wall.
