Skirball Cultural Center
2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd. Los Angeles
Inspired by the Getty's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, this family celebration of the ancient Jewish festival of light explores the themes of Hanukkah through the traditions of Los Angeles's rich and diverse Latin American communities. Get on your feet for musical performances by Latin Jewish bands Klezmer Juice and Pan Felipe, and learn salsa, cumbia, mambo, hip-hop, and more with the beloved dance ensembles Versa-Style and Mambo Inc. Then create a community art installation with acclaimed visual artist Sandy Rodriguez, and learn about Mexican chocolate and decorate chocolate gelt with Maite Gomez-Rejón (Art Bites). Wander inside to hear storytellers Mario Ibarra and Julia Garcia Combs recount the age-old story of Hanukkah in both English and Spanish, and be sure to check out the Skirball's other exhibits too.
