After a buffet dinner, guests watched the JCM video, “Moments in the Media; the Jewish Chldren’s Museum in the News,” which gave visitors a glimpse of the various programs that drew press throughout the past year, including Exodus, the Passover experience, and Maccabees, the interactive Chanukah show.
