Our City - Beautifies Itself
We get to know the “beauty pioneer” Helena Rubinstein at Museum Judenplatz and then walk with her through the Jewish Museum at Dorotheergasse 11. Naturally we meet Jewish woman and men, who consult Madame Rubinstein: a suncream for Gustav Mahler? A cleansing fluid for Hilde Spiel and Eugenie Schwarzwald here? A new aftershave for the famous cantor Salomon Sulzer? Lipstick for the operetta star Fritzi Massary? But in which color? One can be curious about Madame Rubinstein’s tips—and about a funny approach to Viennese Jewish history. In the atelier we design chic packaging for the beauty products …
The tour starts at Museum Judenplatz (Judenplatz 8, 1010 Wien) and continues at the atelier of Jewish Museum Vienna (Dorotheergasse 11), 1010 Wien.
Out and about with Victoria Blitz
Take a bike ride through Vienna’s Jewish history and discover the fascinating tales about Jewish men and women, famous addresses, and wonderful everyday and festive objects. You can even buy a catalogue at the museum to go with this ride.
On your marks, get set, chametz has to go!
Before the Jewish Pesach festival, which will be celebrated this year from April 10 to April 18, a real spring cleaning will take place at home. Everything that is chametz, leavened foods like bread, rolls, cookies, wafers and normal flour, has to leave the house – right down to the very last crumb. During our Pesach tour you will find out why that is the case, what is celebrated at Pesach and why you should eat unleavened matzah bread. To make sure when cleaning at home that everything is “chametz-free,” you will build your own chametz crumb-cleaning machines!An event in connection with wienXtra.
Free admission for children, adults €6.00, free with wienXtra-Kinderactivcard.
I spy with my little eye …
Everyone knows this game to while away boredom, which we would like to play with you in the Museum. And we can guarantee that you won’t be bored. Together we will guess your favorite objects and then find out the stories behind them—big and small, new and old, famous and unknown people. After the game we will design glasses in the Atelier to enable to look even more closely at the details.
From ALEPH to TAW
A Hebrew course for young beginners! First an expedition through the three floors of the permanent exhibition is undertaken and together we search for ALL of the Hebrew letters—on the walls, in the showcases, on the objects, in the elevator and even outside of the museum. This educational program thus links fascinating information about Jewish history and culture to the 22 Hebrew letters. We learn a few, very simple sentences that can always come in handy and write our names—naturally with Hebrew letters!
Off to Utopia! Or what makes the world a better place …
Our exciting children’s tour tells you about Jewish women and men who dreamed of revolution and change. We travel back and forth between Moscow and Vienna and ponder: What would make our world a better place? We will write or drew this straight away in the Atelier. Even if the world does not become better—at least we have utopian art here with us!
Chilling at the Museum
The famous Jewish painter Isidor Kaufmann designed the Shabbat Room in 1899 for the first Jewish Museum in Vienna, a room for celebration, among other things, of the Jewish day of rest. The Israeli artist Maya Zack has created a fantastic installation, allowing us to enter this room and even visit the artist in his studio. We will create our own Shabbat Room to see how Isidor Kaufmann might have celebrated Shabbat and consider what there is to do even when you are not allowed to work.
On your marks, get set, selfie go!
Selfies are clearly all the rage. This afternoon we will be on the lookout for suitable subjects for a special selfie. Bring your mobile phones or cameras, and we will photograph the largest, smallest, or most attractive objects. In the Atelier we can then turn the people or things you have photographed into a hand-made portrait.
