The workshop is designed as a discussion of the Polish-Jewish history of Lublin from the perspective of two simultaneously celebrated festivities – Chanukah and Christmas. The idea refers to the sybolism of the Grodzka Gate as the meeting point for the two religions and the people inhabiting both sides of the gate, independent of whether their houses were lit up by a Hanukkah Lamp or a Christmas Tree. Young people learn to recognise the similarities between religions, getting to know traditional meals, rituals and tales characteristic for the two holidays.
Target group: elementary school, 1st grade middle school
Workshop time: 90 mins
Place: The Grodzka Gate – 21, Grodzka Street
